Paradigm Hyperloop


 
 

We are an international team of students from Northeastern University and Memorial University of Newfoundland & Labrador who have come together to make the Hyperloop concept a reality. We aim to prove the viability of air based levitation for use in high-speed applications by building a prototype Hyperloop pod capable of reaching 200mph.

What is the hyperloop?


What is the hyperloop?


Hyperloop is a conceptual fifth mode of transportation consisting of levitating high-speed capsules traveling through low-pressure vacuum tubes. The concept was introduced by Elon Musk in 2013 and aims to provide a cheaper, more efficient, and more sustainable alternative to existing methods of transportation.

Competition


Competition


The SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition is an open challenge to student teams across the globe to design and build Hyperloop test vehicles. Teams compete for the ultimate prize of performing a high speed run in the SpaceX HyperTube, in Hawthorne, California. Paradigm took second place at the second competition in August of 2017 making us the fastest team in North America and the second fastest in the world. We are now preparing for competition three which is scheduled to take place next summer.
