Students design levitating pod for Hyperloop contest that could revolutionize the future of transportation

Stu­dents from North­eastern and five other top uni­ver­si­ties have joined forces to form Open­Loop, a team ded­i­cated to designing, building, and testing the best scaled-​​down ver­sion of the futur­istic Hyper­loop, a novel mode of com­muter and cargo trans­port that travels close to the speed of sound. Their approach takes the com­pe­ti­tion to new heights.
