If Nov. 8 felt like a "disruption in the Force," that's because it was.
The election of Donald Trump is going to hugely disrupt a lot of things in Washington and around the country and the globe. I've already told you how the new administration could shift billions of dollars toward defense technology. And I'll be sharing more thoughts like that on how and where to shift your own portfolio in the weeks and months to come.
But here's one thing that Trump isn't going to change…
I'm talking about the greatest money-making opportunity we'll see in our lifetimes. That's the Singularity Era and all the innovations coming out of Silicon Valley and elsewhere that this brand-new era represents – and that will make you 10x gains.
So today I want to show you a technology that is poised to disrupt passenger transportation and, therefore, how we live in this Singularity Era.
Thanks to this transportation tech, you'll be able to ride on solar-powered, magnetically levitated rail cars that will get you from New York to Chicago in roughly an hour. This budding technology could, in fact, be the fifth great transit mode after boats, trains, cars, and airplanes.
I know, I know – you've heard it all before…
But this isn't just plans on a blueprint stuffed away on some nerd's cloud account.
In fact, one of this technology's developers just unveiled its concept for this futuristic transport system that could deliver passengers in the United Arab Emirates from Dubai to Abu Dhabi at roughly 700 mph in 12 minutes.
That's normally a two-hour drive.
Let me show you what I'm talking about…
Elon Musk's Latest Vision
Back on June 28, when I first told you about Hyperloop technology, I focused on two American firms that are racing to get their systems up and running.
Turns out, my analysis of this tech wave's impact was too conservative.
In recent weeks, I've seen several new developments that demonstrate how this platform can extend well beyond transportation.
And that is just one more piece of evidence for what I've been saying for a few weeks now…
Don't Miss: This is your ticket to bigger and better returns… and it won't cost you a penny. What are you waiting for? Read more…
The Singularity Era was born Aug. 1, when Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN), Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), and Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) – all high-tech companies – were the four most valuable companies in the Standard & Poor's 500 Index.
That was the first time that ever happened. And this new paradigm is now driving the whole economy and will be the leading source of wealth for decades to come.
The Hyperloop is a transit system that can connect major cities at speeds up to 760 mph.
That kind of speed would change the very nature of our daily lives. People in San Francisco might be able travel to Los Angeles for dinner… in 35 minutes… meaning they could return home that night. You could attend a conference five states away – and be back in your own bed the same night.
Of course it took a tech visionary like Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) founder Elon Musk to dream this up. Back in 2013, at the headquarters of his Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX), he laid out how this novel technology would operate.
Somewhat oddly, Musk didn't see this as a way to add billions to his own net worth. Instead, he wanted other firms to use his basic designs to help make the Hyperloop a reality.
So far, two firms have taken up that challenge. Hyperloop One, based in Los Angeles, and Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), which got started in part through a crowdfunding campaign, have been completing key designs, testing various components, and building relationships with the key decision makers in cities around the world.
About the Author
Michael A. Robinson is a 36-year Silicon Valley veteran and one of the top technology financial analysts working today. That's because, as a consultant, senior adviser, and board member for Silicon Valley venture capital firms, Michael enjoys privileged access to pioneering CEOs, scientists, and high-profile players. And he brings this entire world of Silicon Valley "insiders" right to you...
- He was one of five people involved in early meetings for the $160 billion "cloud" computing phenomenon.
- He was there as Lee Iacocca and Roger Smith, the CEOs of Chrysler and GM, led the robotics revolution that saved the U.S. automotive industry.
- As cyber-security was becoming a focus of national security, Michael was with Dave DeWalt, the CEO of McAfee, right before Intel acquired his company for $7.8 billion.
This all means the entire world is constantly seeking Michael's insight.
In addition to being a regular guest and panelist on CNBC and Fox Business, he is also a Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer and reporter. His first book Overdrawn: The Bailout of American Savings warned people about the coming financial collapse - years before the word "bailout" became a household word.
Silicon Valley defense publications vie for his analysis. He's worked for Defense Media Network and Signal Magazine, as well as The New York Times, American Enterprise, and The Wall Street Journal.
Michael is 100% independent and receives absolutely no compensation from companies he writes about. His ideas are completely his own.
So, it probably goes without saying that you won't ever be left in the dark about breaking innovations, ahead-of-their-time technologies, and breakout companies on the cusp of changing the world once you join this world.
