Starting with sketchpads and ending at the SpaceX Headquarters, the team of Tandon students that designed a pod for the new Hyperloop One finally constructed their project after a year and a half of working and waiting.
The Hyperloop is a conceptual transportation system proposed by Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Motors. The system allows a pod-like vehicle to travel in a vacuum sealed tube to improve efficiency and lower energy consumption.
