Inspired by Elon Musk’s visionary idea and challenge, 36 students from the Delft University of Technology joined forces and founded Delft Hyperloop. The team set out to design and build one of the first Hyperloop pods ever, with which they competed in the 1st SpaceX Hyperloop Competition. The pod features a unique design and levitation mechanism, enabling efficient and smooth travel. During the competition in California in January 2017, the pod was scored on speed, safety, efficiency, and scalability of the design. Out of 2000 competing teams, Delft Hyperloop won the competition, making them the first winners of the SpaceX Hyperloop pod competition!
