Three years after Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk came up with the idea for Hyperloop transportation engineers demonstrated the futuristic transportation system Wednesday.

The magnetic levitation technology zipped through the desert Wednesday morning in Las Vegas.

The idea is to send passenger capsules through elevated tubes between Los Angeles and San Francisco at speeds of up to 750 miles per hour.

Many say it's an alternative to High-Speed Rail which is currently under construction in California.

Experts said Musk's Hyperloop vision could be ready for passengers by 2018.

He's also planning for an unmanned mission to mars.
