If anybody says ‘gone are those childhood days of lego blocks’, tap them on the shoulder and point towards Elon Musk.
The tech czar whose ideas and inventions range anywhere from bizarre to impossible has recently announced that his new project would be about constructing houses using lego-like blocks. The blocks to be used would be made of rocks
Currently, his Boring Company is working on setting up the transit system ‘Loop’ and ‘Hyperloop’ in LA, Chicago, and Maryland.
He announced on Twitter:
“New Boring Company merch coming soon. Lifesize LEGO-like interlocking bricks made from tunneling rock that you can use to create sculptures & buildings. Rated for California seismic loads, so super strong, but bored in the middle, like an aircraft wing spar, so not heavy.”
He further added: The ‘first kit set’ will be ancient Egypt with ‘pyramids, Sphinx, the temple of Horus, etc’.

Given for each of Musk’s ambitious projects that are lined up until 2030, this one seems to kick off at a breezy pace. His topmost priority right now is to get the Model 3 production in momentum and take the number of cars to 5,000 by March 2018, according to Futurism.
Tesla too looks forward to update the self-driving car software which will bring them closer to their goals of making it the Level-5 autonomy by 2020.
In the same time span, Boring Company’s most advanced transportation project of a tunnel under Los Angeles will also be launched.
The next three years will also see Musk working on skyrockets and release of Tesla Roadster 2.0. Word has it that if the Model 3 production falls in place, then about one million electric vehicles (EVs) will be produced every year. And by 2021, China will house Tesla’s gigafactory.
But it will be 2022 that will be Musk’s breakout year. (Isn’t that every year, actually?!)
Anyway, in 2022, Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) will be sent the first planned cargo mission to Mars. The newest in the range of reusable rockets will be used for every endeavor of SpaceX’s in order to make travel affordable.
Oh damn, totally forgot about the other projects such as Hyperloop ‘pusher pod’ which could go up to 220mph. And if things go well, it could reach half the speed of sound. Yeaup! No kidding.
Phew! I think I need a water break to take all of Musk’s goals and ambitions in.
In the meanwhile, here’s hoping this impossible becomes possible irrespective of the pace.
