Elon Musk Asked For Help Naming Their First Tunneling Machine And The Internet Obliged

By Mark Pygas

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.  He even gave people a chance to buy flamethrowers if they wanted it. Seriously if something weird, fun and techy exists -- it was probably done already by Elon Musk and his team.

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.
