Elon Musk says you’ll be able to decide who can use your self-driving Tesla

Tesla Model 3

Elon Musk, cofounder and chief executive of Tesla Motors, today elaborated on his vision for the shared fleet of autonomous Tesla vehicles during a speech marking the grand opening of Tesla’s Gigafactory battery manufacturing plant in Nevada.

The remarks came a week after Musk unveiled his plan to turn existing Teslas into a “shared fleet” with the help of distributed learning of autonomous driving.

The way Musk sees it, Tesla owners will be able to set rules about who will be able to use your Tesla when you’re not using it.

Here’s what he said:

Whenever you’re not using your car, you’ll be able to just tap the Tesla app on your phone and then add it to or subtract it from the the shared fleet. And you’ll be able to define, like, well, you know, who can use it, like only five-star users, or anyone, or only family, or whatever. And then whenever you want it back, you can just tap it, and it will return to you. So most of the time when you look at cars, they’re sitting in a parking lot somewhere, and they’re not being used, and this has the potential to massively amplify the utility of vehicles and offset the cost of ownership. And it’s going to be totally up to you when you want to do it, or not do it. It’s all yours.

“Will it find Pokémon for us?” someone in the crowd asked.

“It will find Pokémon for you, Musk said. “Absolutely. Of course.”

Last month Tesla said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was investigating the accident in which one person died while driving in a 2015 Tesla Model S that was in autopilot mode.

Radinn’s second-gen electric wakeboard is faster and cheaper

Nearly three years after we first saw Radinn's prototype electric wakeboard, the Swedish outfit is back with a redesigned version. The G2X will be on display at the Boot Düsseldorf show this week, showing off its capabilities like a swappable battery so owners don't have to wait for a two-hour charge between 25-minute rides. Those rides will be even more exciting though, since it's capable of 36 mph, up from 28 on the Wakejet Cruise. Better yet, the G2X is cheaper than its predecessor, with a price (before accessories like an add-on foil, "radical" upgrade to max out its top speed or additional battery packs) of 9,900 euros, or about $12,101 US.

It's going on sale later this year, however, there will be plenty of competition. E-Surfer Magazine lists 17 different models in the segment, and there will be new hardware shown at the Boot show from Lampuga and Elektrisches Jet Surfboard.
