    After dropping the idea for the Hyperloop, leaving the development to others, then getting back into the game, Elon Musk is showing a lot more interest in it. He recently held a student competition at his SpaceX headquarters, helping one team hit 201MPH on the 0.77 mile-long track. Now, Telsa itself beat that record with the "pusher pod" vehicle, which hit a new mark of 355 km/h (220MPH), according to an Instagram from Musk.
