"So Gary is capable of now going fourteen times faster than tunnel boring machine". It's not boring at all. Unlike the majority of his fellow humans, however, Musk isn't content to just complain about it: instead, he's boring a network of secretive underground tunnels in an effort to solve Los Angeles' congestion problem.

Lastly, he posted a video of a test run of the electric sleds that would transport cars through the tunnels, "automatically switching from one tunnel to the next".

He warned viewers that the fast-moving video might induce motion sickness or seizures in some. He posted a video of a skate at work.

But he insisted that he's fine and will be ready to go on Thursday. "It was frustrating because I wanted to play". Leonard and Patty Mills each scored 20-plus points and LaMarcus Aldridge chipped in with 18 points.

These clips don't guarantee the tunnels will turn out exactly how Musk has described - the Boring Company still has a long way to go.

Just a month after showing off a concept video for his vision of a high-speed traffic tunnel meant to solve rush hours and slow commutes, Musk went a step forward and presented the real thing.

The tech mogul shared a clip on Instagram from inside the first tunnel, which he revealed will run from LAX to Culver City, Santa Monica, Westwood and Sherman Oaks.

Connelly was in the area visiting relatives and reportedly went for a day hike on Thursday, May 4, accompanied by her dog. She called her daughter's safe return the "best Mother's Day gift ever". "She is an outdoors girl".

Here's a concept video showing what a completed tunnel network would look like beneath Los Angeles.

His plan includes platforms that act like elevators carrying the cars to an underground series of tunnels.

Musk said the Boring Company is focusing on ways to improve technology and efficiency enough to reduce cost by at least tenfold.

That price is far more affordable than what Microsoft has been charging for another mixed reality headset called the HoloLens. The Fall Creators Update, likely to arrive in September, aims to bring aspects of the Windows experience everywhere you go.

Recall that in late April, Musk demonstrated the concept of high-speed tunnel. According to Musk, these sleds will carry cars and their passengers at 125 miles per hour, allowing Westwood residents to travel to LAX in just 5 minutes. It's all part of his venture The Boring Company, a recently-formed tunnelling and infrastructure firm.
