Who is VicHyper?
VicHyper is an interdisciplinary team powered by RMIT competing as finalists in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition in January 2017. As the only remaining team from the Southern Hemisphere and having been awarded the ‘Braking Subsystem Technical Excellence Award’ sign by Elon Musk - VicHyper is redefining the future transport.
Challenging the familiar, VicHyper is diligently innovating and manufacturing our Hyperloop Pod prototype striving to place Australia at the forefront of Hyperloop technologies.
From 1,300 global entries, VicHyper has been selected as finalist in the top 30 to test our functional prototype at the competition finals in California, January 27-29 2017.
With 25 team members spanning across aerospace, electrical and mechanical engineering alongside industrial design, communications and graphic design - VicHyper is diligently innovating and manufacturing our Hyperloop Pod prototype.
Proudly supporting diversity within STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) - half of our team members have at least one parent born overseas, one third are from regional Victoria and we are actively increasing the number of our female team members.
VicHyper has recently been awarded the Highly Commended Certificate at the #TechDiversity Awards by Honorary Philip Dalidakis, Minister of Small Business, Innovation and Trade.
