VicHyper, a group of award-winning team of RMIT technology, design, business and engineering students, are designing a hyperloop – a high-speed travel pod system which has the potential to revolutionise transport and save the environment.

An international Hyperloop design competition was held in Texas earlier this year, with the support of billionaire Elon Musk and the involvement of NASA scientists on the judging panel.

VicHyper were only one of 130 groups from 1700 entries selected to present their design – and won the Braking Subsystem Technical Excellence Award!

VicHyper are the only team from Australia, and indeed the Southern hemisphere, to reach the next round of competition (to be held Oct / Nov). 6146205301440790528
