Elon Musk's Boring Company is coming to life. With a new website and a new video posted Friday, Musk revealed to the world what he envisions for the future of drivers. The video and site were unveiled just a day after a SpaceX employee gave the public a glimpse of Musk's first tunnel boring machine. It's the company's first video shared on YouTube, even though it created its channel earlier this month. Although the clip has no description, the video speaks for itself and shows The Boring Company tunnel project through a 3D rendering.
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk added one more entry to his over-achiever resume on Thursday: construction magnate. During a media event in a cavernous and exceedingly empty train station constructed in the mid-aughts but never used, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel formally announced that Musk's tunnel boring and mass transit company has won its bid to build an 18-mile high-speed connector between downtown Chicago and O'Hare International Airport. Musk says the boring company, called the Boring Company, will not use public funds for its project. By beating a consortium composed of investors, a fund launched by former NBA player Magic Johnson, and British civil engineering firm, the Boring Company caps off a wild 18-month ride with its first official government bid win. Yes, you heard that right: Only a year and a half ago, Musk joke-tweeted that he was done with LA traffic--and that he would buy a tunnel boring machine to dig his way out of the mess.
Of course Elon Musk's joke-turned-real-product flamethrowers (sorry, "not-a-flamethrowers") have the most ridiculous terms and conditions. Thursday morning Musk's tunnel and construction business, The Boring Company, emailed out lawyer-approved terms for anyone who ordered the eccentric billionaire's barely legal idea. Since the not-a-flamethrowers are technically torches that don't actually throw balls of fire they are mostly allowed, but they still produce flames of real, hot heat. SEE ALSO: Elon Musk apparently wasn't joking about a Boring Company flamethrower -- it's here The term sheet was anything but dry. It opened with a rhyming section and continued with self-deprecating jokes and humor about the sold-out $500 devices.
Yep, Boring Candy is the latest idea from the bizarre mind of Elon Musk, CEO of tunnel and construction company, The Boring Company (not to mention electric car company, Tesla). SEE ALSO: Elon Musk's flamethrowers have rhyming, ridiculous terms and conditions A few weeks ago Musk joked about "starting a candy company" and on Thursday he followed through on his "I am super super serious" claims. The post is only captioned with "lol" so don't start saving for Boring Candy quite yet. But the Sees-lookalike peanut brittle box might be his next... stunt? Anyway, his next something tied to his goal of building a hyperloop tunnel system under major American cities for super-fast travel.
