elon musk unveils underground tunnel, his answer to the \'soul-destroying traffic\' of l.a.

Elon Musk unveiled his underground traffic tunnel on Tuesday, allowing journalists and invited guests to ride the revolutionary first rides despite the bumpy underground pipeline
The tech entrepreneur\'s answer to what he calls \"soul\"
Destroy Traffic.
Guests board the Tesla Model S in musk and ride along Los Angeles.
The area is about a mile from the so-called olirie station.
The station is in the middle of a residential area.
\"It\'s basically in someone\'s backyard,\" Musk said . \"
Consists of a wall.
Less elevators slowly drive the car down a wide axial direction of about 9 m.
The sky slowly disappeared and, surprisingly, the narrow tunnel appeared.
\"We are clear,\" the driver said, speeding up when the red light turned green and compressing it into the tunnel to make the subway look like something from space or dance clubs.
The car was so bumpy during the ride that it was enough to get one journalist motion sickness while the other shouted, \"Wow!
Musk called his first ride \"epic \".
\"It was a eureka moment for me,\" he told a House of reporters.
\"I thought at the time, \'This thing will work very well.
\"The rides are bumpy now, he says, because\" we\'re a little out of time, \"and there are some problems with the speed of his shop.
\"It will be as smooth as glass,\" he said of the future system . \".
\"This is just a prototype.
That\'s why its edge is a bit rough.
Later that day, Musk himself came out of the tunnel to his car. He high-
Before giving a speech with the green light of the tunnel, he waved his fist at the guests to talk about the technology and why it makes sense.
\"Traffic is the soul --destroying.
It\'s like acid in the soul, \"he said to guests eating marshmallows and hot dogs, and wanted to turn in the tunnel.
On Tuesday, for the first time, he explained in detail how his system, which he called the \"cycle\", works on a larger scale under global cities.
Autonomous, electric vehicles can be reduced to the system on the wall
There are fewer elevators and can be placed almost anywhere the car can go.
These cars must be fitted with specially designed side wheels that pop up perpendicular to the regular tires of the car and follow the track of the tunnel.
Musk said the cost of the wheel was about $200, or $300 per vehicle.
Some self-driving cars will remain in the tunnel system only for pedestrians and cyclists.
Once on the main artery of the system, each vehicle can operate at the highest speed except for in and out.
\"It\'s more like an underground road than a subway,\" Musk said . \".
Musk said the cars must be automatic in order to work in the system, but specifically not Teslas, and they must be electric due to the smoke of the gas.
The demo is much slower. 40 mph (64 kph)—
The future system that beimaske says will be 150 miles per hour (241 kph).
Nevertheless, it took only three minutes to walk a mile from the beginning to the end of the tunnel, and it took the same time to complete a correct task
Even before the infamous peak in Los Angeles, hands will come out of the parking lot and enter a surface street --hour traffic.
Tuesday\'s disclosure was two years after Musk announced on Twitter that \"traffic drives me crazy,\" he \"will build a tunnel rig and start digging.
\"I will actually do this,\" he added in response to the initial suspicion . \".
Soon after, he started a boring company, joking on purpose.
For the test tunnel of private investment, Musk bought a tunnel --
Boring machine used in the San Francisco Bay Area project and put it in a shaft in the parking lot of the SpaceX headquarters.
Musk dismissed concerns about the noise and disruption of the construction of the tunnel, saying that when workers were bored at the end of the test tunnel, people six metres away \"did not even stop watching TV \".
\"Someone walking through your house will be more eye-catching than digging a tunnel under your house,\" he said . \".
The Boring Company last month canceled plans to build another test tunnel in the west end of Los Angeles, after a community coalition filed a lawsuit expressing concerns about traffic and trucks pulling out of the boring process.
However, Steve Davis, head of the Boring Company, said there was a lot of interest in the tunnel system --
There are 5 to 20 calls per week from various cities and stakeholders.
Musk is planning a project called the lone stone circle, which will take Los Angeles baseball fans to dodge Stadium from one of the three subway stations.
Travelers from downtown Chicago to O\'Hare International Airport will also be there.
Both projects are in the environmental review phase.
Musk said he believes the Chicago project is most likely to be open as soon as possible, and he hopes to have an extensive network open before Los Angeles hosts 2028 Olympic Games.
\"Wouldn\'t it be incredible if you could travel in Los Angeles, New York, Washington? C.
London, Paris, Chicago-anywhere —at 150 mph? ” Musk said.
\"It will be amazing.
Musk\'s representative also announced a new tunnel on Tuesday.
They say they hope to be online soon, a machine that is four times faster than the one they have been using.
Musk said it would take about $10 million to build a test tunnel, far from the $1 billion per mile most of the tunnels his company says need to be built. Cost-
Cutting measures include increasing construction speed with smarter tools, eliminating middlemen, making more powerful boring machines, turning excavated dirt into bricks and selling them, Musk said.
Musk said the tunnel will not be open to the public for the foreseeable future, adding that the regulations have not yet allowed it to be widely open in demo rides.
Musk\'s vision for the underground tunnel is not the same as his other traffic concept hyperloop.
This will involve a network of pipes with little air, which will accelerate special capsules over long distances at a speed of 750 miles per hour (1,200 kph)
Thin mats using air, magnetic and solar energy.
