Watch Elon Musk’s Boring Company Command Its Machine Using An Xbox Controller
By Yoon Sann Wong, 10 Sep 2018
Aside from being Tesla CEO, Elon Musk runs The Boring Company, which is dedicated to drilling holes and constructing tunnels underground to reinvent public transportation.
The company was born after Musk became vexed with LA’s frustrating traffic conditions in 2016.
Traffic is driving me nuts. Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging...— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 17, 2016
Fast forward to present day and The Boring Company has three tunnel boring machines (TBM) that might turn the company’s “loop” system—aimed to take travelers from the LA suburbs to the Dodgers stadium in four minutes—into reality.
Over the weekend, the brand tweeted a video of its second TBM being commanded by an Xbox One controller with the caption, “Best video game ever.”
Meanwhile, Musk smoking weed live on air has already become immortalized as a giant wall mural by a street artist, as well as turned into a meme, a GIF and a Photoshop battle.
