What would you say, if could travel from Geneva to Zurich or from Leeds to Cambridge in 15 minutes? If you could go 250 kilometres (ca 155 Miles) in 900 seconds, without the need to go on a plane? You would spend the entire distance inside a transport capsule, which would slide through a vacuum pipe. This is the Hyperloop-concept. Sounds like the mobility of the future? We think so, too!
And as main sponsor of Swissloop we bring this mobility of the future into the present! The Swissloop-Team includes 40 physics, mathematics, electrical-, mechanical- and civil engineering students, which are all working at ETH Zurich. Together, they design and build a transport capsule, a so called “pod”, for the Hyperloop.
