Pre-Work Talk Munich Inside the Hyperloop Vision: From a Student Competition to a Full-Scale System

Join us for our Munich Pre-Work Talk on Thursday November 21 where Gabriele Semino of TUM's Hyperloop team will answer the #IXDSCriticalQuestion: How can we scale the Hyperloop vision from a student competition to a full-blown system?

The Hyperloop vision transcends most concepts of mobility we are used to. It introduces a new, visionary mobility service that has the potential to disrupt the way we think of mobility.

In his talk, Gabriele Semino will give an overview of the Hyperloop initiatives at the Technical University of Munich. Starting from the very beginning of the student team back in 2015, over the several victories at the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition last summer with a top speed of 482 km/h, to the exciting future projects. Expect an inside look at one of the most successful initiatives at TU Munich!

Intrigued to find out more about this visionary technology and TUM's contribution? Come by at 8:30am for your dose of caffeine. Will will begin at 9am!

We look forward to seeing you at our studio at Ganghoferstraße 68b.
