About

What is Hyperloop?

Hyperloop is a transportation concept stemming from SpaceX and Tesla founder, Elon Musk. Similar to banks' pneumatic tubes that send and receive packages, a Hyperloop pod glides at extreme speeds within a tube carrying people and goods. The tube's engineered environment and the pod's ability to levitate against the track allow the pod to coast at speeds of up to 700mph. Hyperloop is the future of transportation–it's autonomous, environmentally friendly, and incredibly fast.


Binghamton Hyperloop

Binghamton Hyperloop is a team of 25 dedicated Binghamton University students working together to build a hyperloop pod. We are competing in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. Last year, our team was 1 of 24 chosen from 1300 teams across the globe to compete at nationals in Hawthorne, California. Past achievements and success has inspired this year's team to work harder and dream bigger. With new SpaceX requirements and team goals, we are working to innovate the pod for speed and create unique designs for levitation. It is our mission to make the pod efficient, light, fast and environmentally friendly. Together, we are building the transportation of the future.

Join us, as we speed up the future.

Binghamton Hyperloop is in the midsts of their design phase. The team is currently creating drawings and schematics for a fully designed pod. Binghamton Hyperloop will be presenting their design to SpaceX in December 2018 and will be notified if they qualify for the national competition in January 2018. If selected again, the team will be competing at the SpaceX test track in Hawthorne, California in summer 2018.
