According to new plans filed with city officials, the Boring Company is building a car elevator inside the garage of a nondescript house near Los Angeles. The steel shaft is designed to lower a vehicle down to a test tunnel that snakes beneath the city of Hawthorne. And as some jokesters have pointed out, the whole situation sure does make it seem like Elon Musk is building his own Batcave.
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said on Saturday that he is building "a tiny, kid-size submarine" to rescue the 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach infamously trapped within the submerged Tham Luang cave complex. According to the Bangkok Post, a nine-person engineering team assembled by Musk has already begun to arrive in the area.
Elon Musk's underground transportation business, The Boring Company, has won a bid to create an underground high-speed rail line from downtown Chicago to O'Hare International Airport. The company beat out at least four other developers for the project, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is expected to make an official announcement this afternoon.
Elon Musk has finally revealed the literal rocks he wants to sell people.
Elon Musk's Boring Company, which has to date sold the dream of a massive tunnel-based transportation system to get (wealthy) people's cars around faster and also mislabelled "flamethrowers", is now selling itself as the future of mass urban transit.
Chipper villain Elon Musk has been having what appears to be a lot of fun selling dubiously safe Boring Company "flamethrowers", which despite outrage from some politicians are actually just garden-variety torches packaged to look like a weapon from Portal. He's sold 20,000 of them for $US500 ($631) a pop, netting a cool $US10 ($13) million in the process and all without actually having to show any further progress on the company's tunnels!
Since launching The Boring Company a year ago, Elon Musk has mentioned several possibly construction sites for the tunnel-drilling business, and thrown out a vague reference to a "verbal" government approval for a Hyperloop tunnel connecting New York City and Washington, DC. But now we know at least one mayor wants Musk to drill a hole under their city.
Elon Musk, best known for running Tesla and SpaceX, has recently turned his attention back to Earth. Specifically, under the earth: His Boring Company wants to build a tunnel under Los Angeles to alleviate its traffic problem. It's a bold plan, and details are still relatively scarce.
