    The guy across the river built a big drive shed this summer and it has a solar roof. Not sure what the cost was, but rumour has it that there is some “advertising” considerations on it, the builder using it as a model.

    lol if they want to do it for cheap and use it for advertising id be all up for that. Some governments around the world are offering incentives for installing powerwalls and solar roofs. Making it a sure win situation. Helps the country go greener faster.

    Well, knowing this guy, who is a nice guy by the way, he didn’t lay out too much of his own money for it. He has a really good job, like Mercedes company car good. He farms just enough so he gets the tax breaks. I think he is renting out space in the drive shed for winter storage.

    Yes, there are people and tasks for which the transition to renewable electric will be problematic if not impossible. Those persons will resist all the way till their buggy whip tasking becomes irrelevant. Some people still swear by the Betamax tape. Corded phones are more reliable in power outages. Carbureted engines are easier for the private individual to maintain. If you doze off riding a horse, you won’t often have a fatal crash. Kerosene lamps provide a more subdued and relaxing light. Shipping things in wooden barrels allows a single man to easily roll a heavy load about on a tall sailing ship.

    You can willingly embrace the future, or you can get dragged there kicking and screaming. You will arrive either happy or disgruntled. But you will arrive in the future regardless of your wishes.

    Well this is the reason why I think all vehicles should be equipped with the auto driver

    They are also saying smart cars/truck technology saved lives when the truck drove into people in Berlin. There is talk the truck slowed or applied brakes itself.

    I had not read that, but makes sense since Europe has a lot of regs related to pedestrian safety and vehicles.

    Nice, and if you watch the speed at the bottom left he goes from 115km /h to 0 pretty fast.

    I like this piece of technology because, drivers who shouldn’t be driving are on the road. Drivers who are constantly drunk shouldn’t be on the road, under medication, Tired, text messaging and I could go on. I think i’d be able to hit the text limit of this text box. If we have robots who can drive safely for us, i am up for it, for I have seen too many incidents that could’ve been prevented.

    This is the incident that really brings it home for me.

    Gigafactory is open
    http://mashable.com/2017/01/04/tesla-gigafactory-open-model-3/#iRxuj9XWA5qw

    No matter what else you think about Tesla and its odds of success (Im a believer, having driven a Model S P90) this is big

    It means that more Li-ION cells will be produced, making bigger batteries possible, or current ones less expensive.

    The other thing that was announced is that 95% of the components in the new Model 3 will be US made/sourced, making it the single most American car currently in production, with the Buick Enclave in #2 with 90% American

    This is great news, I hope it will also be the start of lower cost Tesla Walls.

    I saw the gigafactory opened. Hope he is better at building batteries than he is at building cars.

    Can’t imagine how – they already top most safety and satisfaction indexes

    https://www.google.ca/amp/www.digitaltrends.com/cars/tesla-tops-consumer-reports-2016-owner-satisfaction-survey/amp/?client=safari

    And I work with 7 guys who drive model S’ and one guy with an S and an X. They love them. I’ve been in both, and while the X isn’t my taste, the S is the nicest sport sedan ever. I’d take it over anything in that price range.

    But to each his own

    tesla has the most satisfaction right now vs any other car company out there. i’d trade both my vehicles in for a tesla, once the price drops a bit . well one for a auto and one when they make a truck or a workvan but i bet you thats next.

    I don’t see much info on this machine but I guess robotic shells are coming and will increase our effectiveness at lifting more weights and doing more than our bodies can handle.

    YES !

    Impressive! Next improvement is that we’ll remove the human in order to reduce the number of errors to zero.
