7 Wild Things I Saw At CES 2023 – SlashGear

To cap it all off, I stumbled upon my last wild piece of tech outside of CES. Remember the Boring Company, Elon Musk’s venture? Las Vegas has been something of a testing ground for Musk’s tunnel loop concept, shuttling people in between the Las Vegas Convention Center and Resorts World. It’s been around for almost two years, but it was my first time which is why it makes it onto this list.

For a $4.50 day pass, you can ride in a Tesla (with a human driver) through the tunnel from one point to the next. Between the LVCC and Resorts World, there’s one transfer you have to make by foot to move into a second tunnel in order to complete your journey.

This is wild for several different reasons. First and foremost, you’re driving through tunnels bored through the earth as a way to get around the borderline-inhuman traffic that CES generates, and it works very well. I’m honestly not sure how well this idea scales up as a mass-transit system, but it helped me catch rideshares, so I can’t complain.

The tunnels and the shuttle service are undoubtedly convenient. I saved quite a bit of time taking those tunnels back and forth. If Las Vegas moves forward with the plan to open even more tunnels and stations, it will certainly become one of the more interesting ways to navigate a city. For now, it’s a neat idea, and it saved me a bunch of time, so I’m here for it.
