A far from his flashy and ambitiuous goals such as self-driving cars, human travel to Mars, environmental preservation and friendly artificial intelligence, Elon Musk has shifted into another “big” idea and his ready to “bore”.
Tesla’s founder will invest to tunnel on its new company, not from people as the usual on its business undertakings.
Musk’s plans was publicly realized via Twitter over the tech tycoon’s rant about traffic.

Musk has long been known as a proponent of new technologies for moving people.
Earlier this decade, Musk spearheaded drumming up momentum for the Hyperloop concept — a mode of mass transportation that would propel pods through above-ground pneumatic tubes. But as of this weekend, he’s pondering subterranean solutions.
The recent move of the tech expert comes following the meeting of 18 tech executives who met with President-elect Donald Trump as part of a Strategic and Policy Forum.

His tunnel vision (pun intended) is in line with Trump’s emphasis on infrastructure. The president-elect has proposed $1 trillion of government infrastructure investment to boost the U.S. economy.
