Boring Co to sell 'Lego-like' construction blocks

Musk has stated that the company would not use any public funds for use in their tunneling endeavors, though that has lead to questions about how they would finance their tunnels, and the possible Hyperloop trains to travel within.

The blocks will be reportedly made from tunneling rock and can be used to create your own sculptures.

In Musk's tweet announcing the new Boring Company product, he points out the rock is "rated for California seismic loads" meaning it is very strong.

In a later tweet, Musk also confirms kits will be offered with the first being for ancient Egypt. The successful merchandise effort raised approximately 10 million United States dollars.

Elon Musk's Boring Company recently revealed a map outlining its proposed underground loop between Baltimore and Washington D.C. Unlike flying cars, tunnels are weatherproof, out of sight and won't fall on your head. Its mission is to cut the costs by a factor of more than 10 and get boring machines to burrow through the Earth a lot faster than they now do. Musk also has preliminary approval for a NY to Washington D.C. transportation system. The system can be above ground or below ground as long as the ride is 20 minutes or less and tickets are reasonably priced.

Shrinking the size of the tunnels they dig is one way of doing this, with the company planning to craft 14-ft-wide (4.25 m) tunnels rather than the typical 28-ft-wide (8.5 m) tunnels now used for one way roads.

Tech expert Lance Ulanoff explains why Elon Musk needs to sell Tesla to a bigger auto manufacturer, unless he can start churning out the electric vehicles at a higher volume.

They could set up shop next to every new project where they are digging and it would create jobs and additional revenue for the company.

As part of the deal, Musk won't receive any compensation of any kind during the next ten year period.
