The Tesla CEO’s idea for a network of underground traffic tunnels that would shuttle cars around might seem ridiculous, but he’s already posting speedy test videos of The Boring Company’s work on social media. (Warning: This video contains strobe lights.)

    I like it, but the congestion will be at the entry points. And this will strictly be a luxury for the ultra rich.

    He is a big fan of sponge bob square​ pants since he has a pet snail, named Gary, in a pineapple house.

    If that is a miniature, then Adam Savage must have built it! He was on original Mythbusters and has a great channel called Tested.

    Saddening to know people without vision controlling the media.

    That’s not even the tunneling system. They showed the hyperloop test video.

    a tunnel for cars like that seems a huge waste of opportunity, would be better for mass transit or shipping, we need to clean the roads up and build bullet trains above and below ground

    yeesh….I like it but man oh man there are some real vulnerabilities that would be a real challenge to address regarding this sled system. Like most d-bags I immediately look at issues that could make this a nightmare versus the positives that could result from such a form of transportation.

    Why would you need a sled component? Just build the tunnels. What's left over could be used for bike lanes.

    From the sound of that electric motor and the acceleration i would say this is fairly close if not completely full scale. A smaller motor would have a higher pitched whine and would accellerate faster. And no they could not have used a scaled down version and slowed the video down to make it look and sound like it was full scale because then the vibrations and bumps would also be slowed down.

    What I wonder is are we going to be given suits or something. I mean some people can't handle those types of speed b/c they can't handle roller coasters.

    Underground traffic tunnels for vehicles to transport vehicles to decrease vehicles traffic. This doesn't sound too good.

    According to the press releases it's the first test of the actual tunnel they've been building under LA.

    Given California’s frequency of earthquakes, the last place I would want to be is in a tunnel underground.
