The time to revolutionize transportation and bring the world closer together is here, and rLoop is making it a reality.

What is rLoop?

rLoop is a non-profit, open source, online think tank.

Our goal is to democratize the Hyperloop by embracing open source and collaborative design and development. Since our founding, more than 140 members from over 14 countries have rallied behind this concept.

Together we are revolutionizing transportation, and our approach to realizing it is just as revolutionary.

Our Mission

The rLoop competition pod is named rPod, to differentiate from development of our full scale Hyperloop pod.

The rPod needs to perform the mission of safe, cost-effective, and efficient high speed transit over the length of the Hyperloop test track while providing a comfortable cabin for a self-contained flight data recorder and passenger dummy, in order to win the SpaceX Competition.
