Elon Musk unveiled his Boring Company's test tunnel in Hawthorne, Calif. on Tuesday night, allowing guests to take some of the first rides on the tech entrepreneur's solution to "soul-destroying traffic."

Details: "Guests boarded Musk's Tesla Model S and rode along Los Angeles-area surface streets about a mile away," the Associated Press reports. It then approached a "wall-less elevator that slowly took the car down a wide shaft, roughly 30 feet ... below the surface."
