Elon Musk unveils parking lot prototype for The Boring Company's vehicle elevator

Chicago Looks To Elon Musk For Future Transport Solution Boring Company's Godot digs first segment of LA tunnel

"Should be operating next week", Musk announced Friday to his 9.63 million Twitter followers, pairing his comments with a video showing a framework of a box that would transport a auto from the surface to the underground tunnel, just as was shown in a video released earlier this spring at the TED 2017 conference.

It was at this point that it seemed Musk might be discussing the recent announcement that his tunnel digging operation had finished the first section of an ambitious underground transport system through LA, reports CNBC.

Chicago Deputy Mayor Steven Koch met with Musk and said he was intrigued by the Loop-O'Hare proposal.

Proving his critics wrong, as Musk seems engineered to do, The Boring Company has made substantial progress since it became a real company late a year ago. According to Musk, we're "no longer waiting for Godot". "It has begun and just completed the first segment of tunnel in LA", Musk wrote.

Fowler gave chase all the way, smacking into the right field wall in foul territory (while failing to grab the ball). He added that Fowler had to be taken to the hospital because doctors were anxious about his knee getting infected.

Still, seeing the inner workings of the project's progress is pretty neat, as was emphasized by a short video Musk posted that shows the area around the tunnel site.

At the current pace The Boring Company is operating, it is likely that a significant portion of its L.A. underground system will be complete by the time a serious Hyperloop proposal breaks ground in the United States.

Elon Musk's ride-sharing vision could be the answer to how ride-sharing could dramatically affect the US automotive industry, according to a Moody's Analytics researcher. The clip shows a vehicle riding onto a auto skate, which then lowers itself underground into a network of tunnels. Musk estimates it could take a vehicle from the Westwood area of Los Angeles to the Los Angeles International Airport, LAX, in five minutes. The platform on which vehicles will travel is being created to achieve speeds of 130 miles per hour, Musk said, adding there is no speed limit in the tunnels.
