Elon Musk is basically as close as anyone in the real world will get to Tony Stark. Tesla is working on harnessing the power of the sun, and SpaceX is making space travel more affordable than ever. But you might not know that he also has a massive tunnel boring machine that's digging a hole underneath the parking lot of SpaceX's headquarters.
Called The Boring Company —pun intended— the goal is to help alleviate gridlock traffic in the world's busiest cities by taking it underground.
Traffic is driving me nuts. Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging...— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 17, 2016
He kept good on the above tweet, showing off his new toy only a few months later.
But now, Musk is asking for help on naming the machine.
This morning, he took to Twitter with a suggestion of his own. Ultimate Boring Machine, the Second.
I know what you're thinking … then why not "the Third"? Well, I've learned my lesson about 3's.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 5, 2017
But in true fashion, it was Twitter that came up with the great names.
But one suggestion seemed to stand out.
Let's make this happen.
