Elon Musk posts new videos of his underground tunnel project for LA


Musk also posted a test run of the electric sled that would transport cars at 125 miles per hour (200 km/h) through the tunnels, writing alongside it: "Warning, this may cause motion sickness or seizures".

Musk informally announced plans to start The Boring Company last December on his Twitter account.

Test video businessman posted on his page.

Make that the Boring Machine, monikered Godot, a reference to a mysterious character that never appears in a Samuel Beckett play called "Waiting for Godot". Time will tell, but Elon Musk doesn't waste any time getting his ideas up and running, as evidenced by the short turn-aroud time between announcement and this video.

Technology like this would enable travel from Westwood, California to LAX in just five minutes, Musk said. Will be a few hundred feet long when complete.

Today, Musk revealed the progress his tunneling operation, the Boring Company, has made, releasing videos of the tunnel he's digging on his SpaceX property in Hawthorne and a prototype of the electric sled. Via Instagram in a series of posts, the billionaire entrepreneur provided details about his plan Boring Co., which he formed after getting sick and exhausted of Los Angeles's notorious traffic jams.

The CEO posted the video to Instagram.

It's interesting because of the caption: "First tunnel for The Boring Company begins".

Considering that President Donald Trump has selected Musk as one of his strategic and policy forum advisors, however, Musk is in a good position to propose and conduct ambitious projects like The Boring Company.

It might be time to take Elon Musk's Boring Company seriously.
