Do you think people would like to go in a sealed capsule inside a sealed tube for such a journey?

Of course, it would be almost impossible to create windows in the capsules. So therefore you might think that claustrophobic feelings may pop up very fast. However, right now we also travel in trains through tunnels for more than 30 minutes, and we use metros in which almost no light is visible. We travel in planes for more than 10 hours at 12km height with just very tiny windows. So why wouldn’t we want to go in a capsule for a mere 30 minutes?

By using high-resolution screens on all sides of our vehicle which display a 360° view of the surroundings, we think we still make up for a good view during the journey. Furthermore, extra attention will be paid to creating a spacious and comfortable design.
