Canada’s first Hyperloop is about to get real as the team from the University of Waterloo will perform its first evaluation on November 1 on their variant of Hyperloop called the Waterloop. This is Canada’s only Hyperloop, and the world’s first practical pneumatic one which will debut its exceptional levitation system in Ontario.
The team also revealed another lighter and quicker variation of the Hyperloop prototype pod called the GOOSE I, which is under the procedure for being fabricated.
Waterloop was created to be lightweight and fast, now clocking a rate of 340 miles per hour (550 km/h). This is at least half of Hyperloop pods that are theoretical traveling, but is the quickest one in the world although what Tesla.
Waterloop is simply another one of the many attempts that are Hyperloop after the theory had its patterns made opensource by Elon Musk in 2013 and was unveiled.
Although Musk is never involved in the contests, SpaceX did hold a Hyperloop Pod Contest in 2015, where teams from across the world examine their human-scale pods on the test track constructed next to SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California.
Waterloop is expected to be part of that contest, and by the looks of it, it is going to present some serious competition.
