The University of Cincinnati has brought to the world some of the finest innovations throughout its history by supporting nascent student endeavors and shepherding them to fruition. The Hyperloop UC project is one such example. We are a dedicated team of students from various backgrounds committed to building the world's first Hyperloop pod. As finalinist in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod competition, we will test our creation at their global competition.
What started out as an ambitious, far-fetched concept proposed by Elon Musk, has transformed into the next obvious step for transportation. Engineers around the world took up the mantle to overcome the technical challenges involved in any new large scale proposal. Hyperloop UC is at the fore-front of this technological inflection point. Hyperloop has now moved from the question of 'if' to that of 'when'. Most of us in the Hyperloop community believe that a working prototype system of a full-scale application will be deployed within a decade. We at Hyperloop UC however, have a much more ambitious timeline. Our pod production is in full-swing and we will test our design as soon as summer of 2016. That's right! Summer of 2016!
This has been possible through support from the University of Cincinnati, our sponsors and individuals like you! We are thrilled to see the excitement the project has generated and grateful that we have been tasked with this challenge.
Cost has been a major design factor for us and we have kept it low through our minimalist design philosophy. We have received encouraging amount of funding through our supporters but there is still a long way to go!
Your patronage will help us realize the dream of a new generation of transportation system apt for the 21st century. Together we can bring this world a little closer and remove boundaries between our global community.
We are excited for the future, are you?!
