The Boring Company's New Tunnel Concept
-Elon Musk’s new company The Boring Company reveals their ambitious tunneling project.
-The Boring Company is setting out to build a 3d network of tunnels to alleviate transportation congestion.
-Elon Musk struggles with traffic in Los Angeles and wants to change that way people travel removing the stress of waiting in traffic.
-Street level elevators will move cars down to a tunnel at which point the car skate that the car was lowered on will navigate the tunnel, no driving required!
-As soon as this project takes off it’ll be good to be an elevator technician.
-Top speeds of 200 km/h or 124 mph
-Elon Musk has started the Boring Company as a hobby more or less and has purchased some used boring equipment. The company takes around 2-3% of his time and is worked on by some interns and part time by some Tesla staff.
-The Boring Company has a pet snail named “Gary” after the snail from SpongeBob Squarepants. -Gary travels 14x faster than current boring machines. The company’s goal is to beat Gary or increase tunnel boring speed by over 14x.
-Elon doesn’t see a future of flying cars everywhere as they would generate a lot of noise, and further increase stress and anxiety of travel. Having thousands of objects in the air overhead will add the potential of those objects coming down and doing harm to people and property where a tunnel would contain any accident within it’s own little area.
-Currently mines on Earth are far deeper than skyscrapers are tall, with humanity’s current technology it makes much more sense to go underground than above ground.
-Elon envisions combining these transport tunnels with the hyperloop idea.
-Tunnels being dug only a 4x the diameter of the tunnel deep won’t be felt or heard above ground. -Civilization wouldn’t even know there is construction going on below.
-Part of the motivation to build these tunnels comes from the fact that autonomous driving will actually increase the number of cars on the road. Elon’s plans for having Tesla cars driving around like driverless Uber's will at some point make bus travel more expense as more and more Tesla’s hit the road.
