A team of mechanical engineering students are designing and building a pod for a Hyperloop—a low-pressure tube designed to transport people from Los Angeles to San Francisco—for their senior design project. The team, their project, and their Kickstarter campaign were featured on Channel7 News. The team will be tested at the Hyperloop competition, sponsored by SpaceX, in June 2016.
