Which looks mildly exciting

Testing The Boring Company car elevator

A post shared by Elon Musk (@elonmusk) on

If there’s one quality that any successful elevator must have is that it must be boring. Let’s be frank, who actually wants to go riding in an exciting elevator on their way to and from work every day? That can’t be good for your blood pressure or the state of your morning mocha frappuccino. With that measure in mind, we can all probably agree that Elon Musk’s Boring Company has performed a successful test of its car elevator. Purists would probably wish for an even slower descent, but it does seem to strike the right balance between dropping you down to the level of Musk’s utopian tunnel project and not actually dropping you.
