It also sports an a.m./p.m. indicator and a flyback complication. Orange canvas strap and a black rubber strap NATO-style strap. 500 pieces total, so get’em quick. $6,700

    Elon Musk, the brilliant billionaire wonder boy, has created a transportation concept called the Hyperloop that we’re sure you’ve heard of already. Naysayers came out of the woodwork to scoff at the beautiful sketches that had no “substance”. The physical prototype is still years away, but Musk might be on to something. Ansys (ANSS), a maker of very  used to design planes, trains, automobiles and all manner of other things, has fed the Hyperloop specifications into a computer and come away impressed. “I don’t immediately see any red flags,” says Sandeep Sovani, the director of land transporation strategy at Ansys. “I think it is quite viable.” The Loop will shoot pods through a tunnel via air pressure at 800 MPH, bolting the pods from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 30 minutes. Tweaks, however, must be made in the design and bearings throughout the tube, but in an overall simulation the design and concept works. Advantage Musk.

  • Real Life Tony Stark, Elon Musk, Channels Iron Man with 3-D Gesture Technology

    If you’re not familiar with Elon Musk yet, he’s a South African born version of Tony Stark, the fictional billionaire, genius, superhero playboy. Though he might not be the playboy socialite Tony is, it’s probably because he’s too busy, building space travel rockets or a Hyper loop train that can take you from San Fransisco to LA in 30 minutes or being the CEO of Tesla Motors. I’m not exactly sure if Musk created what you are about to see as an ironic gag (because of the constant Tony Stark comparisons) or has been working on it for years, but he basically took the hand gesture technology from the Iron Man movies and built a Leap Motion controller to manipulate 3D designs, Musk even notes the film in his dialogue. “If you can just go in there and do what you need to do — just understanding the fundamentals of the thing should work, as opposed to figure out how to make the computer make it work, then you can achieve a lot more in a lot shorter period of time.” Says Musk Musk uses three different type of gesture based design, from a simple desktop to an immersive virtual reality more »

The Model S has climbed many hurdles of doubt recently and can now officially stand atop the mountain and scream, because it is now champion. An electric car so beautiful, so economical, so fast and now so safe it blows literally every other car tested by the NHTSA out of the water. Not only that. It achieved better than perfect. ”Safety levels better than 5 stars are captured in the overall Vehicle Safety Score (VSS) provided to manufacturers,” Tesla Motors said in a statement. “The Model S achieved a new combined record of 5.4 stars.” “The Model S has the advantage in the front of not having a large gasoline engine block, thus creating a much longer crumple zone to absorb a high speed impact,” said Tesla. “The longer the crumple zone, the more time there is to slow down occupants at g loads that do not cause injuries.” It appears as though Tesla is flipping off the entire auto industry and making a car with the potential we more »
