How to build a hyperloop model for school exhibition! – DIYguru Makers

Why wait on Elon Musk?

The Hyperloop is getting closer and closer to becoming reality, but if it is still not coming fast enough for you Dianna Cowern (aka Physics Girl) has a decent placeholder for you. It can’t carry passengers, just batteries with magnets attached; it isn’t sealed off in a near-vacuum; and its max speed looks to be about 7 to 8 mph, but hey, it’s a start.

It’s fantastically DIY, to the extent that Cowern can make it on her bed. This would be a great project to show a young kid the power of magnets and motion. Watch for the train, stick around for the quick lesson in electromagnetic physics.
