Elon’s Car Tunnel Looks Hella Awesome!


I’ve already written blog posts about Elon Musk’s super cool idea for an automated car tunnel under Los Angeles. Turns out it’s more than just an idea. Not only has Musk built a working test tunnel (though where he built it exactly remains unknown), but he has tested it out and uploaded a video of the test onto Instagram.

According to the video’s description, the actual tunnel will have cars traveling at speeds up to 125 mph with the potential of traveling from L.A. to Westwood in 5 minutes. Five minutes! How awesome would that be? (That is, if the actual tunnel wasn't potentially going to be road blocked by government bureaucracy!)

Check out the video below and tell me that it’s not the most awesome thing you’ve ever seen. (Warning: may cause motion sickness or seizures!)
