Hyperloop pod

MIT student engineers won a competition to transform SpaceX and Tesla Motors co-founder Elon Musk’s idea into a design for a Hyperloop to move pods of people at high speed.

The Boston-based Massachusetts Institute of Technology was named the winner on Saturday after a competition among more than 1,000 college students at Texas A&M university in the city of College Station.

The Hyperloop is a high-speed ground transport concept proposed by Musk to transport “pods” of 20 to 30 people through a 12-foot diameter tube at speeds of roughly 700mph (1,127km/h).
