JANUARY 27-29, 2017
WARR Hyperloop is a student initiative from the Technical University of Munich, formed in 2015 in response to SpaceX’s call for pod prototypes. At the first SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition in January 2017, the pod from WARR — the only finalist to feature a compressor — stormed to victory as the fastest pod.
AUGUST 25 -27, 2017
After a successful first competition, in slightly over 6 months we built a completely new prototype: smaller, lighter and much, much faster. With a mass of only 85kg and an maximum acceleration of 0.9 g, it reached a top speed of 324 km/h and won the second Hyperloop Pod competition.
After having won the second competition, we recruited some of the most talented students of the Technical University of Munich to break our own speed record at the next competition in July 2018. Our 45 members are from 16 different countries and seven different faculties. Together we are designing, building and testing the next WARR Hyperloop Pod Prototype.
The idea of the Hyperloop was proposed by Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and SpaceX. Rather than developing the idea himself, he opensourced the concept and is now holding yearly student competitions, encouraging young minds to develop and build Hyperloop prototypes. Having already won the first two editions of the competition, our team wants to break its own speed record at the competition in July 2018 by building the world’s fastest Hyperloop – again!
