The Future of Transportation

For the past 8 months I have been working extremely hard on a project to create the world's newest form of transportation, the Hyperloop. For those of you who don't already know, the Hyperloop would allow passengers to travel between San Francisco and Los Angles in a low pressure, solar panel lined tube (or "loop") in about 30 minutes at speeds up to 750 mph, and all for about $20. This would take thousands of cars off the road and replace them with a completely self-sustaining (green) mode of transportation. Not to mention you could live in SF and commute to LA or vice versa!

My team and I, here at UC Santa Barbara, were recently selected out of 1200 of the world's top technical universities to actually build and test our Hyperloop Pod design in a one-mile test track that SpaceX (Elon Musk) is building for us at their headquarters this summer.

We have raised $40,000 so far and are getting extremely close to our goal. If you would like to donate to our project you can do so with the link below. Any donation would be incredibly helpful to our team (seriously, even $1).
