The first commercially published "coordinate paper" is usually attributed to Dr. Buxton of England, who patented paper, printed with a rectangular coordinate grid, in 1794.  A century later, E. H. Moore, a distinguished mathematician at the University of Chicago, advocated usage of paper with "squared lines" by students of high schools and universities.  The 1906 edition of Algebra for Beginners by H. S. Hall and S. R. Knight included a strong statement that "the squared paper should be of good quality and accurately ruled to inches and tenths of an inch. Experience shows that anything on a smaller scale (such as 'millimeter' paper) is practically worthless in the hands of beginners." 
Hyperloop One, a company based in Los Angeles, California, is leading the effort to commercialize the future of transport for moving passengers and/or cargo at airline speeds at a fraction of the cost of air travel. Hyperloop One is designing, testing and building this new mode of transportation. The architecture is structured around a custom linear electric motor that accelerates and decelerates an electromagnetically levitated pod through a low-pressure tube. The vehicles will glide silently for miles at speeds of up to 300 m/s with no turbulence. The system is designed to be entirely autonomous, on-demand, energy efficient, quiet and safe—built on columns or tunneled underground, which eliminates the dangers of at-grade crossings and requires smaller rights of way than high-speed rail or a highway.
