Elon Musk is the real-life version of Tony Stark from the "Iron Man" movies. He's a billionaire inventor obsessed with bringing science fiction technology into reality. Already he's responsible for the award-winning all-electric Tesla automobiles and the one of the first profitable, private space travel enterprises, SpaceX. He's also come up with a legitimate way to travel by train from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 35 minutes. This guy is unreal.
Not only is Elon Musk creating our future one wild gadget at a time, he can predict it too. This summer on "The Colbert Report," he envisioned some radical new inventions changing our world for the better, including electric flying machines that take off and land vertically.
Basically, when Elon Musk speaks, many people close pay attention. If our generation has anybody that comes close to Thomas Edison, it would have to be Elon Musk. That's why a new interview he did is turning heads all over the Internet. At the MIT AeroAstro Centennial Symposium, he called artificial intelligence our "biggest existential threat."
And that's not all.
