Elon Musk’s Boring Company will focus on hyperloop and tunnels for pedestrians and cyclists
Elon Musk announced a shift for his latest startup, the Boring Company. They will focus on hyperloop and tunnels built for pedestrians and cyclists instead of cars. Originally, the idea behind the Boring Company was to create networks of tunnels in which cars would park on electric sleds to be propelled at high-speed to their destination inside the tunnels. Later, the idea was updated to also include hyperloop, a similar transportation system that also includes a pump system to reduce the pressure inside the tunnels in order for the sled, or more likely ‘pods’, to travel at even faster speeds.
