The tech world is filled with excitement today as the internet is flooded with articles on Elon Musk's new 'juicy' interview with Joe Rogan. The Newly crowned richest man on the planet and Tesla's CEO discussed so much gold in regards to its upcoming, highly anticipated sports car, the roadster.
"I want it to hover, and I was trying to figure out how to make this thing hover without, you know, killing people,". "Maybe it can hover like a meter above the ground or something like that. If you plummet, it'll blow out the suspension, but you're not gonna die," Musk said in the podcast interview.
Musk is widely regarded as one of the world's most daring, fearless, and innovative thinkers. Much of his success can be attributed to his ability to satisfy our unrealistically, childish desires and unfathomable fantasies. To be quite fair he does have a tendency to make bold, futuristic claims and promises that he doesn't often follow through on. So it will be interesting to see If there is any merit to what was said in this interview.
The new Tesla roadster will be receiving its finishing touches this year and is scheduled for a 2022 release date. Musk said that the company is currently finishing the engineering on the Roadster.
