Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that’s taken over our lives.

And down you go.

Beam me down, Elon.

This appears to be the principle behind Elon Musk’s new magical tunnels.

Should you not have heard of this bottomlessly engaging idea, Tesla’s CEO got fed up with traffic in LA and decided he would bore holes beneath the Earth’s surface to allow traffic to run smoothly.

Some thought this must be a joke. But he’s progressively revealed the Boring Company’s machines and its logo.

On Friday, he went one step further — or, if you prefer, lower. The Boring Company now has a website, which proudly displays a movie of how your Tesla will disappear beneath the road.

You’ll see, perhaps, four cars ahead of you and think, “Gosh, I can’t tolerate this.” Fortunately, there will be a pad in the road. You position your car on it. Then you disappear into an underworld where everything runs perfectly and no one is ever frustrated.

Your car is carried along on a little sled and very swiftly too — at up to 130 mph, according to the video — as there are many layers of sleds and roadways. And, of course, it’s controlled by a splendid computer system. So nothing could possibly go wrong.
