HyperXite placed in the top 5 of all Hyperloop teams in the world for their overall design. HyperXite is one of six teams to make it to the open air Hyperloop Tube in the second SpaceX Hyperloop Competition and is the FASTEST and HIGHEST RANKED American team. We are continuing our journey to alter the landscape of transportation and are happy to tell our story.

HAWTHORNE (CBSLA.com) — Two dozen teams of students from 35 countries competed in Hawthorne Sunday in hopes of providing a critical component for the potentially revolutionary form of high-speed travel known as Hyperloop. [...] “We actually designed, prototyped and built these air levitation skis ourselves,” said Arwa Tizani, UC Irvine team captain... read more
HyperXite Looks to Revolutionize a Future Affordable and Sustainable Transportation
In August 2017, on a warm, sunny day, a team of 15 engineers anxiously watched as they launched their version of a Hyperloop pod, a new concept of transportation, through a vacuum chamber test... read more
SoCal school represents - The HyperXite team from University of California, Irvine, was able to put its pod on the test track on Saturday, reaching speeds of 30 mph in an open-air run (i.e., not in a vacuum environment), project manager Chancelier Schilling told me. ... read more
Design teams from all over the globe gathered near Los Angeles over the weekend for an unusual competition. The prize was a claim to nerd fame: Who can design the fastest Hyperloop pod in the world? ... read more
While other students are out partying on a Friday night, a team of UC Irvine undergrads is installing new control systems and fine tuning software for their hyperloop pod. Their prototype is a step toward realizing Elon Musk’s vision of whisking passengers and cargo from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes... read more
More than 1,000 students gathered at Texas A&M University on the weekend to compete in SpaceX’s Hyperloop pod competition. The Hyperloop is a theoretical high-speed transit system in which people- or cargo-carrying pods would be loaded into giant low-pressure tubes and sucked along by a large fan at speeds approaching Mach 1... read more
[...] At UC Irvine, where 25 students working 40 to 50 hours a week on the hyperloop project have received $10,000 plus lab and office space from the university, free training from software companies such as Ansys and guidance from employees at corporations including Microsoft... read more
Find a way to get more than 800 people from Los Angeles to San Francisco in about an hour. That's the goal for members of the HyperXite team at UC Irvine as they finalize their designs for a pod that would speed through a tube at more than 700 mph, levitated by compressed air... read more
The Hyperloop, proposed by serial entrepreneur Elon Musk in 2013 as a radical, high-speed transportation concept, may no longer be the stuff of science fiction as it inches closer to becoming a working prototype... read more
Los Angeles to San Francisco in 35 minutes? It is hard to imagine, but indeed that’s the idea behind Hyperloop, a conceptual high-speed transportation system proposed in 2013 by entrepreneur Elon Musk, founder of Tesla Motors and Space X. The system would transport people and cargo in pods that hurl through pneumatic tubes at over 750 miles per hour... read more

What if there was a system of transportation cheaper, faster and most importantly, safer than driving, flying or boating? This next evolution in transportation is the Hyperloop, to design and build a pod that can transport 840 people between Los Angeles and San Francisco at 760 mph while floating on a cushion of air. Developing this technology is... read more
The “Official SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition,” announced in June with a goal of the passenger pods being tested at the Hyperloop test track in the summer of 2016, is “geared towards university students and independent engineering teams... read more
