Elon Musk says The Boring Company’s first car elevator is nearly operational
Techcrunch ------ Elon Musk’s tunnel venture The Boring Company is plugging away on its first tunnel section, and it’s not just a hole in the ground – the multi-co. CEO noted on Twitter that the car/pod elevator that will be used to bring vehicles below ground to the tunnel is likely going to be operational next week. In case you missed Musk’s big reveal for The Boring Company’s vision, the basic idea is that surface access points will allow cars and other vehicles to drive on to elevator panels from regular surface routes. Those will descend to a tunnel network, where the car or cargo will slide into the flow of traffic aboard a sled; no one’s actually driving in the underground routes, but instead these automated sleds are ferrying them around in tight synchronization with one another. Tunnels will stack, crisscrossing and overlapping each other for maximum efficiency across many stacked layers. To learn more click on the picture below to read the article.
