Hyperloop Challenge

This is a design research and UX design project in collaboration with Jitpanan Jjaturuntawanichya (Illustration), John Wegner, Linzi Wu, Sophie Feller and Dashiell Corvin-Brittin. 

Let's first start with a little story... (click to view the details)

 
 

“Hyperloop is a new mode of transport that seeks to change this paradigm by being both fast and inexpensive for people and goods.”

“Hyperloop consists of a low pressure tube with capsules that are transported at both low and high speeds throughout the length of the tube. The capsules are supported on a cushion of air, featuring pressurized air and aerodynamic lift. The capsules are accelerated via a magnetic linear accelerator affixed at various stations on the low pressure tube with rotors contained in each capsule. Passengers may enter and exit Hyperloop at stations located either at the ends of the tube, or branches along the tube length.”
