Possessing a modified Tesla Model X zipping through a Boring Company tunnel Tuesday night, Elon Musk took the wraps off his vision of a high-speed tube system that he considers could ease congestion and reevaluate how countless commuters get about towns.
“I thought it was epic,” said Musk as he explained how he felt being whisked through the Boring Co.’s demonstration tube. “For me it was an epiphany, like’this thing nicely worked.”
Engineers and workers have been dull the 1.14-mile-long tunnel under one of the chief roads in Hawthorne, California. 1 end of the tube begins in a parking lot owned by Musk’s Space X. The opposite end of this demonstration tube is in a neighborhood about a mile off in Hawthorne.
Throughout his evening presentation, Musk explained the Boring Co.’s tunnels as “a true solution to the soul-crushing traffic,” laying out the ways they could be incorporated into towns to one day make transport faster and easier.
