Ever wondered how fast a car could potentially go if it had rocket thrusters installed on them? We’re not sure how safe it would be, but thanks to @Pslavi on Twitter, he has put together a concept video that uses a bit of video editing to imagine how fast a Tesla Roadster could go (and what it looks like) if it had SpaceX thrusters fitted onto it.
Solar panel installations don’t necessarily come cheap, but the idea is that because they’re designed to potentially save you money on your electricity bills, it will eventually help offset the initial costs. For those who are looking to hop on board the solar bandwagon, then Tesla’s solar panels might be of interest to you.
Unlike gas-powered cars, electric cars rely heavily on its battery where it pulls multiple duties at keeping the lights on and also providing the range, the latter of which would have typically relied on gas for regular cars. This means that the battery in an EV is doubly as important and can be pretty expensive.
Video calls have been around for a long time, and with the coronavirus pandemic, they are becoming more important than ever, so much so that Elon Musk has claimed that video calls in Tesla vehicles will “definitely” be a future feature that will be implemented into the company’s cars.
Many companies around the world are doing their part in helping combat the coronavirus outbreak. Some companies are leveraging their manufacturing and production facilities to help create medical equipment used by hospitals, and it looks like Tesla is gearing up to join in the battle as well.
The world is currently facing a crisis with the coronavirus outbreak. This has put an unprecedented strain on healthcare systems around the world, and even countries known to have really good healthcare systems are struggling to keep up with the number of patients admitted on a daily basis.
A couple of years ago, there was a Tesla that was involved in a fatal crash. Now according to the NTSB, it seems that they are laying some of the blame on Apple for the crash. While the governing body did lay most of the blame on Tesla, it seems that they believe that Apple should shoulder some of the responsibility.
Cars these days are getting smarter where they come with a variety of sensors and cameras on board that can warn drivers of obstacles. All of this seems to be paving the way towards a future of self-driving cars, but it seems that there still needs to be some work done on them, especially when they can be tricked with a simple two-inch piece of tape.
Let’s say a family member gave you their old laptop or computer and did not bother wiping or formatting it. On the computer, there are a bunch of software and services that belonged to the previous owner. Would you, legally, have the right to use that software and services even though you did not buy them?
What do you do when you’re a billionaire and CEO of several tech companies with seemingly too much time on your hands? If your name is Elon Musk, then perhaps releasing an EDM track on SoundCloud could be a good way to pass the time, which is exactly what Musk did when he released a song called “Don’t Doubt ur Vibe”.
Recently there was a report, or rather, a petition in which it asked the NHTSA to investigate Tesla over multiple reports of cars suddenly accelerating forwards by themselves. If true, this would be incredibly alarming as it could lead to all manner of accidents, and in worst case scenarios, even death.
Update – Tesla has since refuted the claims with a post on their website.Modern cars have definitely gotten a lot smarter compared to cars back in the day, where they are now equipped with computers and sensors that are supposed to make the driving experience better. However, sometimes the addition of technology can make things worse and more complicated.
The problem with electric cars is that their motors tend to run considerably quieter compared to regular car motors. This can create a problem for pedestrians who might not otherwise be able to hear an electric car driving up behind them, especially if they have a pair of headphones on. However, Tesla might have an answer to that problem.
Earlier this year, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk had hinted that video streaming platforms such as Netflix and YouTube would soon be coming to Tesla vehicles. Given that you can already play games on Tesla’s infotainment system, we suppose it’s not a stretch to think that you would also be able to stream video as well.
