MIT reveals prototype of first HyperLoop Pod

With an aim to engineer future of transport, MIT researchers unveiled HyperLoop Pod, first prototype of high speed travel world.

Hyerloop technology brings a new high speed way of transportation. Based on technology that drags the pod using air pressure, it eradicates the problem of infrastructure and works on low energy. The technology is under development and there is lot of time requires making a prototype a final model ready for public. The reason lies with safety and setup needed to initiate it. Researchers are already working to bring the best for masses. Recently we covered news on Hyperloop One, a California based startup has raised $92.6 Million to build up a public and goods transportation system that can travel at a speed of 581Kmph.

Similar to those students at MIT are also working on hyperloop transportation and introduced the first Hyperloop Pod. Video above offers the glimpse of pod, a portable size revealed in SpaceX Hyperloop competition.  Still in its development stage the researchers at MIT aim to shape the future of transport through this.

About Hyperloop:

Hyperloop is the next generation transportation system capable of reaching 760 mph. A vision by Elon Musk, that will revolutionize the way we travel and transport goods. Due to high speed, it becomes one of the most feasible systems for cities. The technology features a pod or a train that travels through tubes dragged ahead due to air pressure.  Similar to this usage of magnetic levitation is another technology used in high speed transportation can change the face of future vehicles.


  • MIT Students showed up Hyperloop Pod prototype at SpaceX Hyperloop competition.
  • The prototype is designed to travel at high speed. SpaceX Hyperloop is capable to reach 760mph, breaking barriers of high speed transportation.
