More than 1,000 students gathered at Texas A&M University on the weekend to compete in SpaceX’s Hyperloop pod competition. The Hyperloop is a theoretical high-speed transit system in which people- or cargo-carrying pods would be loaded into giant low-pressure tubes and sucked along by a large fan at speeds approaching Mach 1.

Just 30 teams won the chance to test their designs on a California test track this summer. See some of the winning designs above.
