A team from MIT won the best overall design award in the first round of the Hyperloop pod design contest, held last weekend at Texas A&M University. About 120 teams participated in the event. The MIT entry focused on speed, braking, stability and levitation. Powerful magnets placed over a conducting plate -- the aluminum SpaceX track -- will accomplish levitation in an actual pod. The magnets generate lift.
The MIT team's capsule, which is about 8 feet long and 3 feet wide, weighs about 550 pounds. It's not meant to hold people or cargo.

LOL! So at the cheapest it will cost $60k to get to California from the East Coast...one way. Nope...

I'm saving my allowance for a spaceship instead!
