About HYPED:

HYPED is a University of Edinburgh student society built around a passion for Hyperloop technology. They were formed in 2015 to participate in the first SpaceX competition, where they received the ‘Subsystem Technical Excellence Award’ for modular design of the pod and consideration of passenger loading/unloading process. In 2016 they entered the second instalment of SpaceX competition and having successfully advanced to the Finals, they are now preparing their prototype to showcase at SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California, where they will have a chance to run it in a 1200m Hyperloop and test its performance. HYPED have registered for the next instalment of the competition already and will now be building a self-propelled Hyperloop prototype to -finalist in the ‘Hyperloop One Global Challenge’, where their entry was one of 35 selected among 2600 entrants. The expert panel of judges in Amsterdam (June 2017) announced HYPED as one of participate in SpaceX event in summer 2018.

The group was also shortlisted as a semi ten winners of the Global Challenge. HYPED are proud to be the only student group in the winning ten – other groups include leading engineering consultants and contractors, governments, policy-makers and governmental agencies.

Our group unites dozens of students from all walks of academic life and different ages. We match ambition with reality, focusing on academic approach to the topic in order to maximise the benefit from Hyperloop technology. Our work is supported by The University of Edinburgh and sponsors such as Cirrus Logic, RS Components and Costain and having got serious interest from various entities, including the UK Government, we look forward to the a bright (and hyped!) future.
