Elon Musk has definitely got a lot of things on his plate. The billionaire behind Tesla Inc. and SpaceX has posted an image of a cap on Twitter with a gold logo that reads "The Boring Company." It seems Musk is really serious about digging tunnels under Los Angeles.

It was in December last year when Musk tweeted about his frustration with traffic, which led him to launch a company that would address the situation. In manufacturing, boring is the "process of enlarging a hole that has already been drilled," and Musk cleverly used the pun to name his latest company.

On Sunday, Musk took to Twitter to post a photo of the cap bearing the company's name and logo. Many followers replied to the CEO's tweet asking how to get one for themselves. Even famous DJ Zedd chimed in asking for one. Musk replied that he will send one to the musician.

How Musk's Tunnel Is Unfolding So Far

The photo further cements the fact that Musk is really serious about building a tunnel company to help Los Angeles' traffic congestion. Earlier this year, Musk shared his vision of building a network of tunnels underneath the city to help make the lives of travelers more convenient.

It all started when Musk complained of the traffic in the city. At first, many people doubted the veracity of Musk's tweet.

But then he followed it up with another that said he's actually going to do it.

Back in late January, Musk tweeted again that he will soon begin work on his tunnel project.

The team working on Musk's tunnel project has dug a test trench that is 30 feet wide, 50 feet long, and 15 feet deep right in the middle of the SpaceX headquarters. Musk does not need permission from city authorities as this is private ground.

Elon Musk's Tunnel Idea Does Not Seem So Crazy After All

The idea behind the tunnel project is to create a network of tunnels underneath Los Angeles that would allow people to travel underground instead of braving the traffic on the roads.

The underground tunnel may seem preposterous at first, but if anybody can do it, it's Musk, who is certainly not lacking when it comes to crazy ideas. Just last month, Musk said that his SpaceX company is planning to launch two private citizens into space by the end of next year.
