Sometimes you hear the phrase as the crow flies, right? Meaning that it’s the shortest distance in the air to get someplace. Well, Elon Musk has a little bit different philosophy with that. And he started the Boring Company a couple years ago. Probably not one of his more famous companies, but the boring company is exactly what it sounds like. It actually tunnels underneath places. All right, so give you an idea about how large the boring equipment is that they run underground. This is the actual cutter that was used to bore the LV loop. Very, very cool. You can see that it actually gets damaged a little bit as it’s going underground, and they’re able to replace these as they need to. So here in Las Vegas, they decided that they would actually create a series of tunnels underneath the Las Vegas convention. And put Teslas through them cuz they don’t emit any obnoxious gases and they run these cars as you’re seeing behind me, through these tunnels to transport people around the Las Vegas Convention Center at this time. They’re actually expanding this now to other hotel properties in the area. And rumor is that someday you’ll be able to take one of the boring companies, Teslas from the. To anywhere in town. So it’ll be very interesting to see how this develops, but they are actually working as part of the LV loop
