Love him or hate him, there can be no question that Elon Musk is operating on a different frequency than everyone else. Pretty much all of his ventures have seemed so far fetched as to be borderline insane – at least until he starts pulling them off. The idea of designing a reusable rocket that could land on a barge in the ocean didn’t just seem crazy, it didn’t seem to be in the realm of possibility from an engineering perspective – that is, until Space X proved otherwise.
So today Elon unveiled Tesla’s first electric truck, and at first glance it’s another WTF moment. I, however, am reserving judgment. I just saw a picture of it and I’m not quite sure what to make of the fucking thing.
One thing’s for sure: There’s never been anything like it before. That carries a lot of weight in my book.
