Elon Musk Plans To Sell Bricks
On Thursday night Elon Musk’s The Boring Company livestreamed a company event on YouTube, in which Musk discussed plans for the hole its burrowing under Los Angeles.
Musk said the tunnel will be used for a 150-mph “Loop” transit system that will take riders in 16-passenger pods from downtown to LAX—an 11 mile trip—in 8 minutes.
But Musk also plans to sell all the dirt he’s digging up for about ten cents per highly compressed bundle.
Musk described them as “ bricks that are made by compressing the dirt at extremely high pressures, adding a small amount of concrete.” Musk mentioned a couple months ago in tweets, he wants to sell the bricks as large LEGO-like kits so customers can use them to build monuments.
