Elon Musk on new Boring venture: ‘Trying to think about the future and not be sad’

Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Elon Musk sent Twitter and the internet buzzing Friday with talk of his newest venture: The Boring Company.

Just don’t expect dull—as far as one can tell, Boring Co. would built a network of tunnels under Los Angeles so cars could sidestep the city’s legendary traffic jams. Musk showed a brief video about the venture at his TED talk Friday.

Musk first floated the idea in December of 2016, tweeting that he wanted to build a tunnel boring (as in digging) machine so he could start digging tunnels.
