Delft Hyperloop

In 2013, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk published a paper describing the Hyperloop, a theoretical mode of transportation in which people travel at high speeds in pods through a vacuum tube. Musk set up the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition to see if the world’s brightest students could design a vehicle for the system. Delft Hyperloop won first place in innovation as the lightest pod that consumed the least amount of power. The Delft Hyperloop design includes a carbon fiber, aerodynamic body, fail-safe batteries, and a passive electrodynamic suspension. It fits eight passengers, who can look out virtual windows that make it appear they are flying slightly above the ground.
