The Hyperloop is more than just the stuff of Elon Musk's imagination.

Hyperloop One officially unveiled its plans to build the first super-speedy transport system in the United Arab Emirates, allowing you to travel from Abu Dhabi to Dubai in 12 minutes. (It would take two hours by bus.)

Hyperloop One couldn't wait to share the news, and posted a video yesterday. Can you feel the excitement?

In addition, we also discuss Samsung issuing another mea culpa. We want to get more answers as to what happened.

Lastly, we talk about Pantsuit Nation, a private Facebook group with nearly 2 million members that exploded in popularity just before the elections today.

Speaking of which, did you vote? You should.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by the CNET News team in New York and producer Bryan VanGelder.
