Musk, the Silicon Valley high-tech tycoon best known for his Tesla Inc electric auto manufacturer, planned to make a rare personal appearance at a public event in Los Angeles on Thursday night to answer questions from residents about his tunneling plans. "But obviously that can only happen with public support".
If you are wondering just how such fast transportation might be possible, look no further than the Ted Talk with SpaceX COO Gwynne Shotwell that Elon Musk also kindly posted for us. Tunnels, on the other hand, Musk detailed were "way less nerve-racking than flying cars" and still "so fun". Musk also mentioned his vision for the network, explaining that a single ride would cost $1 and could carry up to 16 passengers.
Tesla-driving Angelenos may soon be able to hop out of their battery-powered vehicle, board an electric pod in a Boring Co. tunnel and get to the port where SpaceX is about to build massive rockets that it aims to fly to Mars.
In the info session, Musk revealed that there's going to be miles of underground track all over the city.
Once operational, pedestrians and cyclists will be given priority to ride in its pods, for less than the price of a bus ticket, Musk says.
The extension runs 13.5 metres (44 feet) under public roads around the SpaceX headquarters, and is the first time the Boring Company has been allowed to dig outside of its property line. Now Musk wants to build support for the Boring Company's plan to build the more extensive 2.7-mile prototype tunnel in West Los Angeles.
Hand-delivered flamethrowers: One of the fun fundraisers that Musk set up for the Boring Company sold 20,000 flamethrowers (or "not-a-flamethrowers" for regulatory purposes) at a cost of $500 each.
The plan calls for excavated soil to be compacted into concrete reinforcement segments for the tunnels, or turned into construction bricks. "It's the only way we can think of to address the chronic traffic issues in major cities", Musk said at the event addressing a crowd of roughly 750 people.
