Just a couple videos from tonight's Tesla factory unveil. Absolutely stunning. Armies of robots doing everything. Seen the movie Iron Man? This is the real thing.
The size of this thing has to be seen to be believed. The plant is nearly a mile long. Tesla's only using one end of it and it still takes ten minutes to walk the length of the Tesla portion, passing scores of robot stations like this on the way.
This is the future of American manufacturing. They can make anything. It's almost 100% vertically integrated, which means everything from plastics and metals to batteries, electronics, motors and component assembly is done here, with flexible multi-purpose robots. Every car can be different, with no retooling, because the robots can do anything. It's just software.
