  • Elon Musk the 21st century Edison??

    I like this guy. Seems to be an entrepreneur who understands how to make things work.

    Now he's done this

    I'm sure he's going to have his share of failures, but if I was an investor, I think he'd be worth a few dollars.

    He's done some good stuff. This hand-waving business? Pretty much just hand waving, as far as I'm concerned. 3-D design will never be the domain of a "layman" or "idea guy," regardless of the interface. I don't see that this will allow for a major increase in the speed that competent designers can achieve in designing parts - there are already numerous interface tools (joysticks, spaceballs, etc) that already allow the designer to interact with 3D models rapidly and intuitively.

    And don't get me started on hyperloop...
    If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

      Good call. We could be watching a genius for the times...in the making.

        Spaceballs?!?! I loved that movie!,
        I believe in life, and I believe in love, but the world in which I live in keeps trying to prove me wrong.
