Elon Musk’s The Boring Company operates a machine using an Xbox controller

Captura de pantalla Laura Martínez  CNET

In the clip below, you can see one of the Boring Company's three tunnel diggers being controlled by an Xbox One X controller.

During an interview with the comedian Joe Rogan last week, Musk discussed The Boring Company's origins, saying the company began as a hobby born out of a joke, but the company now has major infrastructure projects planned for Chicago; Washington, DC; Los Angeles; and Hawthorne, California. This is literally the machine being used to burrow into the ground, most likely at Hawthorne, where Elon Musk's test tunnel is now being worked on. The company, as we all know, has introduced flamethrowers and hats in the past and is no stranger on taking unconventional approaches. It rests comfortably in your hands without causing stress or tension, which is another reason that The Boring Company is using them.

Vehicles would be carried through the tunnels on track-based electric sleds at speeds of up to 150 miles per hour. An elevator-type system would lower a vehicle, and the people inside, from the street onto the sled, while cyclists and pedestrians would use other, specially designed pods. Once moving, the sleds would transfer from side tunnels to the main tunnel, ensuring that all the sleds on the main artery are constantly moving, thereby ensuring maximum efficiency.

Traffic is riding me nuts.

The United States Navy once famously replaced submarine joysticks with Xbox Controllers, but there's now a new use case for the list.
