Keynote Speaker

In 2013, Elon Musk released his concept for the Hyperloop – a futuristic transportation tube capable of transporting people and freight at speeds of up to 760 mph. Having not patented the design and with no plans to develop a commercial vessel himself, Mr.Musk encouraged others to step forward and take up this challenge through open source design/development.

In February 2015, Hyperloop Technologies, one of the two leading contenders for the Hyperloop’s design, announced plans to develop a route between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Tasked with the design and analysis of all major mechanical elements of the Hyperloop system, PI Boston welcomes Josh Giegel to share their story and vision.
