The Boring Company Celebrates Milestone With Prufrock II, Aims To Defeat Gary The Snail


Elon Musk is one of the world’s most renowned entrepreneurs, as he’s the CEO of numerous companies and sits on the board of directors of various others. For instance, he’s the CEO of the Boring Company, Tesla Inc., SpaceX, Dogecoin, and Twitter, among others. Not to mention, he’s single-handedly reviving Vine, making him truly revolutionary, if not legendary! Therefore, he’s indelibly recognized as a global powerhouse associated with innovative technology and advanced engineering. The Boring company was founded in 2016. We’re looking at what the mastermind, Musk, is working on to eliminate some overlooked critical issues everyone else failed to see.


Elon Musk posted a video on Twitter that shows the test of Prufrock II vigorously digging through the ground as he proudly celebrates with family and friends. Musk stated that the tunnel boring machine (TBM) seamlessly tunneled from one property to another to test Profrock II. The tempestuous TBM, designed to tunnel turbulently at an expeditious speed of one mile per week, has been around Texas for more than a year. The Boring Company initially shared a photo of Prufrock II tumultuously going off into the ground in Texas in April 2022.


Why It’s Significant: The Boring Company has an incredibly awesome initiative to end traffic jams thanks to finding loopholes, meaning rapidly creating state-of-the-art loops and hyper loops that go superfast to simplify driving, to be exact.


Musk said, “Our goal is to solve traffic, which plagues every major city on earth,” in April 2022 about The Boring Company.


Musk’s sense of worldliness and strong rootedness in human advancement invokes an instant solution to speed up traffic routes by creating tunnels to ensure people end up at work or school on time efficiently.


Now, the company manages a spectacular tunnel system destination in Las Vegas, Nevada, that predominantly utilizes Tesla vehicles where clients can seamlessly pay for their uber-cool, ultra-high-tech underground rides in innumerable ways, such as Dogecoin.


The company plans to expand its proportions and locations in its Las Vegas operations. Also, the company aims to increase its tunnel destination reach across the country.


There’s one problem, though, which is scaling, as Musk noted the company hadn’t solved yet. Musk's mission is to legitimately overcome “Gary the Snail,” as it’s currently aptly called after the SpongeBob character. Perhaps hopefully, when it becomes faster, it’ll be named “Sonic the Hedgehog.” As of now, the snail torments The Boring Company with his speed or lack thereof. Previously Musk had stated that the main goal is to get the boring machines to move much faster than a snail’s pace, which can help reduce costs, increase revenue, and create tunnels at a larger scale.


Although the Prufrock II is quite swifter than the company’s previous tunnel miner, the capacity of one mile per week is still far below the fictional character “Gary the Snail.”

Musk said that The Boring Company could conquer Gary the Snail in 2024.

“In the short term, if each Prufrock-2 mines at 1 mile/week and TBC produces one new Prufrock machine per month, then TBC will be introducing 600 miles/year of capacity,” The Boring Company said in a press release on April 2022. You can find more information on this project on the company’s website.

The Boring Company raised a whopping $675 million just earlier this year in a funding round valuing the company at $5.67 billion. It was said that the funding would help with hiring notably over-the-top staff and vastly improving the scale of operations.

The funding will assist the company with creating Prufrock III, which the company said could have a possible movement goal of seven miles per day, which is a lot & much better than Prufrock I if you ask us.
