Musk than took his look at the future a step further by asking Colbert what new technology he is hoping for.
I wish there weren't any cables. I wish that computers didn't have to be typed into, that the mouse and the keyboard are terrible, it's a terrible interface, that I could just have a relationship with the machine, that I could have a discussion of my needs and it would do it. I think cables on anything are terrible, not just communication, but charging cables, that I could walk into my house and things would charge, or I would have a subscription service to a charging system and anywhere I went in the United States there'd be a charge that would follow me around.
Instead of shutting Colbert down, Musk simply told him that he'll do it. Some of those ideas might sound pretty far-fetched or even impossible, but if anyone can bring them to life, it's probably Musk.
