We might have had simple dreams like going to space or flying in a rocket. One man has gone way beyond that and shot his car into space on the back of a rocket. That’s a dream we would never have even thought about having. The cars he builds come with a bioweapon safety mode to save you in a war.
Elon Musk is the definition and best example of a serial entrepreneur, he built amazing companies like zip2, x.com, and PayPal – one of the OG payments interfaces. With the money he got from selling PayPal, he began his next set of adventures by starting Tesla, SpaceX, and more.
He is eccentric to the point of it being ridiculous, he started a company called The Boring Company because he was stuck in traffic one day and tweeted out that he was stuck in traffic and wished he could just dig a tunnel and go. Almost immediately he confirmed that he will be starting a company to do the same and he called it The Boring Company.
Tesla is the most valuable car company and one of the most valuable companies in the world, making Elon Musk one of the richest people in the world. But, it is crazy that they have not made much in terms of profit and pretty much every year has been run at a loss! Maybe that’s why he takes a $0 salary.
His company, Neuralink is a global leader in Brain Computer Interface. They are working on building a system that can connect to the human brain and communicate with it directly and they have achieved a lot! They are not yet at the point where you can think of a particular product and then have it dropped off at your doorstep (although the way google seems to strategically place ads for what you are thinking about seems very suspiciously close), their aim is to develop fully-implanted, wireless, high-channel count, brain-machine interface (BMI) with the goal of enabling people with paralysis to directly use their neural activity to operate computers and mobile devices with speed and ease. It is human enhancement at the base level for now, with dreams of building some amazing tech that we can explore!
Tesla recently unveiled the Tesla Bot, an almost humanoid looking robot that can do anything you want, that is aimed at doing any repetitive and mundane tasks that humans do today and replace humans in any dangerous tasks they may have to do today. It is one of the best examples of technology and engineering as it looks amazing and functions better than anything else on the market that is in the same line. His dedication to making products to make a better world is seen in every single product he develops, for example, the crash testing of the Tesla Model S, the car did not break, in fact it was the crash testing machine that broke. This might be why you sometimes see the Tesla Model S with a safety rating of 5.4/5
