Elon Musk posts video of 'electric sled' for tunnel travel

Tunnel boring machine

"One of the most soul-destroying things is traffic", Musk said during an interview at TED Talks. It's not boring at all. In the future, Musk wants to expand the system to cover the whole greater Los Angeles area, and his company has big plans to build tunnels stacked 30-deep on top of each other in a city.

The third video segment is the longest, and shows a test run of "our electric sled" that will go 125 miles per hour through tunnels.

Its subscribers Elon Musk honestly warned that watching video can cause the audience nausea or dizziness.

The CEO posted the video to Instagram. That was quickly followed by a short video of Elon's first boring machine being brought up to speed for the first time.

Let's begin at the beginning, with a photo on Instagram showing the entrance to the test tunnel located in the parking lot at SpaceX headquarters. Musk has said he's working on tunnel-boring machines (TBMs) than can simultaneously dig up and reinforce tunnels, which could go a long way toward reducing costs and solving a big engineering challenge. The twisted genius just posted video of a test sled zooming through a test tunnel.

Miley Cyrus returns to pop music with new single, 'Malibu'
According to ETOnline.com, Miley Cyrus released the video for her highly anticipated new song, " Malibu ", on Thursday. She has been included on the Time 100 list of most influential people in 2008 and 2014.

Musk has been teasing the public about his tunnel-building plans for more than a year.

"Full length of first tunnel will run from LAX to Culver City, Santa Monica, Westwood, and Sherman Oaks", Musk wrote.

The idea of a huge underground tunnel where cars travel from point A to point B on car-carrying platforms or sleds with rapid speeds saw the light of day at an undisclosed location.

Thankfully, it appears that Musk is doing just fine - and the Boring Company is in even better shape than we thought. The result would mean Westwood to LAX in 5 mins.

Recall that in late April, Musk demonstrated the concept of high-speed tunnel.
