" Could a new vehicle display system recently revealed by Panasonic be a foreshadowing of what Tesla has up its sleeve? Remember — Elon Musk tweeted: "Wait until you see the real steering controls and system for the 3. It feels like a spaceship." Since then, it's been radio silence. But at CES, Tesla partner Panasonic revealed a new system that featured a head-up display (HUD) and augmented reality (AR). This sophisticated HUD system is capable of projecting large virtual images in the driver’s eye line, using AR to give drivers information and even warn them of potential dangers. It replaces the traditional instrument cluster and many of the car’s physical controls. "

Panasonic is still doing things like entertainment systems for cars. They have a life outside if the Tesla deal everywhere else. I've say releasing a product at CES does not really qualify as a clean if they made it. It would be interesting though, if Tesla was going to travel that far down the rabbit hole with a third party. It strikes me more that Musk would want to keep the core tech Tesla as Panasonic can licence that to anyone. Well have to see though.

" “Today is a landmark moment in history for global air traffic surveillance, air traffic safety and the aviation industry as a whole,” said Don Thoma, CEO, Aireon. “This successful first launch brings us one step closer to changing the way the world flies by enabling the ability to track aircraft anywhere on the planet. Once our global ADS-B surveillance service is fully deployed, every ADS-B equipped aircraft can have its precise location accounted for 24/7.” "
https://aireon.com/2017/01/14/aireon-announces-successful-first-launch-space-based-ads-b-network/

" The Aireon Solution
Aireon will change this by placing ADS-B receivers on the Iridium NEXT constellation, which consists of 66 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. This space-based ADS-B receiver network will relay signals from all ADS-B equipped aircraft to controllers worldwide, allowing 100 pecent global air traffic surveillance regardless of terrain, location or infrastructure and without requiring any additional surveillance infrastructure by the ANSPs or equipage by the airlines.

Anyone that has even picked up an electric toy car for their kid knows that most all of the damn things are stuck in Ludicrous mode. They can't seem to figure out a gradual acceleration or stopping mode. But they are kids, of course, they just laugh as their little heads snap back.

I hope he gets saved from the Dark Side.

" “Star Trek” and Asimov remind us that the market and all the behaviors associated with it are temporary and historically contingent. If that is so, then what Thiel thinks of human nature and motivations—that people are competitive, acquisitive, greedy—is temporary and contingent, too. "

Thiel claims to prefer “Star Wars,” but his philosophy may be Trekkier than he’d like to admit.

And note that SpaceX is putting the core numbers on the boosters so you can keep track on your score cards when each booster flies again. ☺

Promising early results from the Ludricrous Easter egg. Looks like 0 to 60 mph in 2.34 sec (Motor Trend spec) might be achievable...

Motor Trend ‏@MotorTrend Jan 12
@elonmusk Bring it on! We'd be happy to validate the P100D, as we did the P90D's Ludicrous (2.6 sec) 0-60 mph time

Elon Musk ‏@elonmusk
@MotorTrend Sarah should be in contact with you soon about doing a benchmark test
https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/819664369818578944



With Tesla’s new semi-autonomous autopilot feature, the automaker now introduces us to the new Ludicrous-enhanced 2015 Tesla Model S P90D.

Not pictured is when Musk turns around and points at the roof saying "That's a nice roof, I've got some tiles you might want to see...."

Story
Tagline
Dedicated to getting the REAL Elon Musk more active on Google Plus
Introduction
“changing the energy cycle from petroleum-based to solar-electric; and moving into space.”

(expropriated from Wikipedia)


Elon Musk (born June 28, 1971) is an American engineer and entrepreneur best known for co-founding PayPalSpaceX and Tesla Motors. He is currently the CEO and CTO of SpaceX, CEO and Product Architect of Tesla Motors and Chairman of SolarCity. Musk is best known for having created the first viable production electric car of the modern era (Tesla Roadster), for designing a private successor to the Space Shuttle (F9/Dragon) and creating the world's largest Internet payment system (PayPal).

The Tagline has been changed (Nov09, 2012) from Verified to more active because Mr. Musk does indeed have a G+ profile that is verified ( +114461178896543099856 )   and he has used it for the occasional hangout and posted a few photos. However fans always want more, so I will continue to echo his Tweets and post news items till he (or his media minion) take on this task. However I do appreciate that he is an extremely busy individual and I guess spending his time changing the personal transportation industry and going to Mars rather than posting to various social media sites is acceptable. ;)
