Our Story


Who are we?

Éirloop is the first team to represent Ireland in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. Coming together from over 6 different universities across the island, we are on a mission to show the world that Ireland is among the leaders in innovation, engineering and technology.

2018 Competition

Éirloop came 5th out of over 800 teams competing worldwide in 2018. Ireland was one of only 6 European countries represented during the finals at SpaceX headquarters, California. We were also awarded a special innovation award based on our early performance and the unique design of our pod. This year we are back to achieve even more!

Hyperloop


The Hyperloop is a proposed mode of freight/passenger transport in which the pods/capsules travel within a vacuum sealed tube. This allows them to reach tremendous speeds as they can disregard resistances. The implications of the coming system will be huge for the future of travel!

"Faster than a plane, more convenient than a train"
