Under Hyperloop’s Shadow, A Think Tank is Born on Reddit
Determined to win SpaceX's Hyperloop pod competition, rLoop has embraced the pros and cons of full online collaboration as a means to power our collective future
Not all things born in the deep, dark recesses of the Reddit hive mind fall within the scope of the latest netherworld press release. Following an announcement that SpaceX would open the design of the Hyperloop pod to the public came RedditLoop, a once-subreddit that’s since taken on the less legally-precarious name of rLoop. The team has its eyes set on winning the third-party design competition, but, perhaps more importantly, offers a new model for problem-solving, strategizing and stargazing.
