Elon Musk Reveals Videos of The Boring Company's First Tunnel

Elon Musk’s ‘Boring Company’ has begun work on its first tunnel beneath Los Angeles,

Musk on Friday posted several pictures of equipment meant for digging tunnels beneath Los Angeles. The project is one of Musk’s latest ventures, which was inspired by a desire to alleviate “out of control” traffic in Los Angeles.

In a series of posts today, Musk revealed a glimpse at the processes that are bringing the first tunnel to life, in the first stages of a network that will ‘cover all of greater LA.’

‘Warning, this may cause motion sickness or seizures’

He gave a look at the boring machine segments being lowered into the starter tunnel. These are now ‘going through final assembly, according to Musk, and will eventually be ‘a few hundred feet long’
