WIRED - Episode 1
The Future is Here
Meet the rLoop Team as they set up at TE Connectivity's Silicon Valley facility to prepare for the SpaceX Hyperloop Competition. As the only non-University team in the competition, the various team members will share the unique story of the team's formation. Now is the time to bring the virtual pod design to life!

A Matter of Seconds
The team is exhausted, excited and nervous for the testing session. Will the team's work up to this point be satisfactory in the eyes of SpaceX's engineers?
WIRED - Episode 4
We're Still Here
Up against the holidays and January competition, the team needs all the help it can get. The question remains - will the pod work in Los Angeles and have they developed the best prototype?

Everything is possible
A project that has been worked on for well over a year, a dream that may become a reality - all coming down to one weekend in January.
Autodesk Fusion 360
rLoop assembled the world's first crowdsourced engineering team to compete in the Space X Hyperloop Pod competition. With nearly 1,200 members from more than 50 countries, rLoop's unique magnetic levitation system makes them among the most interesting teams competing.
rLoop is building the future of transportation: the Hyperloop. Learn how they use Slack to tackle this massive challenge as a team.
How do you tackle transportation challenges? The team at rLoop has the answer: a levitating pod changing the way we travel. #AU2017
How it works
Discover how the rLoop team engineered their rPod for the Hyperloop competition.
First Hyperloop Static Hover Test
In August at an unassuming facility near LA, the rLoop Hyperloop Prototype Pod weighing over 360kg magnetically hovers in place and independent of a Hyperloop Tube for the first time.
