Elon Musk’s boring chat at TED

Elon Musk has to be one of the greatest personalities of modern times. You’ve got to applaud his vision and drive to just make shit happen. In this video he discusses his new project digging tunnels under LA, the latest from Tesla and SpaceX and his motivation for building a future on Mars in conversation with TED’s Head Curator, Chris Anderson.

Other highlights include talking about how many gigafactories he’d need to power the world, how much it’d cost (spoiler alert: just the equivalent of one year’s US military budget) and talking about what inspires him to build faster boring machines…

“We have a pet snail called Gary, and Gary is capable of moving 14 times faster than a tunnel boring machine – so the ambition is to beat Gary.”

This is a must watch video so grab yourself a coffee and check it out…
