Go underwater!

Peter Vesterbacka, the creator of one of the most popular apps – Angry Birds – is to build an undersea tunnel with a budget $18 billion.

The plan includes an 80-mile-long tunnel and a high-speed railway to connect Helsinki (Finland) and Tallinn (Estonia). Quite fast, huh?

Vesterbacka had this idea in mind for a long . First, he talked to Estonia Minister of Foreign Affairs, Marina Kaljurand, at a dinner 2016.

“I looked at him quite skeptically, as an enthusiastic and very naive Finn. But when he introduced his background, he started to sound more believable,” Kaljurand said.

Vesterbacka is quite optimistic about the whole plan. He is sure that most important thing is to bring people together and fight for the idea.

“Make a detailed plan, announce the partners and secure the funding, get the permits, start the drilling. That’s pretty much it,” Vesterbacka said.

The main question was the funding. But Vesterbacka had an answer for that as well.

He stated in his interview with Buzzfeed that “70% of the money everyone is waiting on will come from China.” However, Vesterbacka didn’t mention precisely who would be providing the money.

He is to create the large transferring area, decreasing travel between both Helsinki and Tallinn from 2 hours on a ferry to 20 minutes on high-speed rail.

Hope, it will look like this:
