Elon Musk is Already Testing his Crazy Underground Tunnel

It might be time to take Elon Musk’s Boring Company seriously. It’s not boring at all.

It has barely been two weeks since Musk first shared his vision on how to alleviate traffic in Los Angeles with his newest company called The Boring Company. Using a network of underground tunnels and having vehicles zip around on electric sleds, passengers could travel without having to deal with ground-level traffic at speeds up to 124 mph. Of course, the video Musk shared was entirely computer generated and seemed like something out of a science-fiction movie, but he’s already making progress.

The Tesla CEO has shared a video on Instagram showing off a test run of an electric sled that would be used to transport vehicles underground. He warns that the video could cause motion sickness or seizures as it zooms through a dark tunnel with lights. There’s no actual speedometer to indicate how quickly the sled is going, but it’s likely it’s well over 100 mph based on how it’s moving.

    I always take Elon Musk seriously. This guy is doing more to combat climate change, provide cheap power, alleviate traffic, and reignite the space race etc. in the short time he’s been at it, than governments who have been sitting on these problems for decades with 1000 times the resources.

    He has an advantage: He doesn’t have to pretend to care about voters while working for donors. Instead, he attracts shareholders who share his goal of improving the world.
