Elon Musk Turns his Eye on Iron Man’s Technology

Elon Musk, the famed founder and CEO of Tesla Motors, seems to be a limitless fount of ideas, bringing next generation technology to the world way ahead of anyone else. So far he has given us a side-ways flying space ship that can be reused, a high-speed long distance transportation concept, and probably the best car on the planet; and then there are countless other ideas waiting for public release.

Singlehandedly he is guiding humanity into the future that we only ever saw in sci-fi films.

Musk’s latest announcement could be the most high-tech idea yet, and not surprising as it was actually taken directly from a recent sci-fi film.

Elon Musk tweeted that he and his team at his private rocket company SpaceX, had developed a system that allowed them to design rocket parts using mere hand gestures after witnessing Tony Stark using a similar technology in Iron Man 2.

Last Friday Musk tweeted that they had “figured out how to design rocket parts just with hand movements through the air.”

The technology is still only young, and not quite at the level of Stark Industries, but the concept works, and now Musk is working on adding a holograph generator to complete the technology.

When Musk first made the announcement Iron Man director Jon Favreau asked if it would work like in Iron Man, and Musk replied, “Yup. We saw it in the movie and made it real. Good idea!”

In a later tweet Musk said that he would post a video demonstrating the technology, showing the design of a rocket part using only hand gestures, and then printing the design in titanium.

Here are the original tweets:
