The official public opening of the Tesla Gigafactory in Texas is now within the database.
Housed within the largest constructing, by quantity, on this nation, Giga Texas is spectacular. Staff and their households who go to the constructing understand it’s one thing particular they usually’re excited to be part of it. This model of “machines constructing machines” is essentially the most superior Tesla manufacturing facility but, Elon stated in his most polished presentation ever.
Manufacturing was halted for this occasion. It was a “suspended animation” manufacturing facility for viewing. Clearly, in full manufacturing, the meeting strains had been filled with Mannequin Ys. If the main automakers aren’t terribly afraid of this cutting-edge plant, they need to be. Beginning with a clean sheet of paper with new concepts on the way to construct the way forward for AI is an unimaginable profit.
There’ll by no means be a grand auto plant opening to match it. It should have value tens of millions to tug it off. The main points would take a big thumb drive to explain. The coloured accent lighting within the manufacturing facility; leisure, together with curler skaters and DJs; classroom food and drinks; and a lot pleasure for the eyes.
You may see all out of doors occasions on YouTube. The monster parking zone, the fog machines to make the lasers extra dramatic, the whole north finish of the constructing a projected video, the coaching drones, and naturally world-class fireworks on the finish of Elon’s speech.
There was a petting zoo for the children, Texas cowboys demonstrating their lariat methods, food and drinks for everybody. Two tank vans filled with ingesting water! No stone of hospitality was left unturned.
The massive, nonetheless unused area behind the Tesla emblem home windows has been reworked right into a world-class live performance corridor. All of the lighting strategies of rock exhibits have been used right here. And naturally the megawatt sound system!
Elon arrived on stage driving the primary Tesla Roadster. From my viewpoint, he gave his most polished presentation ever, masking the previous, current and future. He ended up going again to the Cybertruck, the long run. The longer term is, in response to Elon, the Cybertruck for 2023, the Semi, the Roadster, the most important automotive battery manufacturing facility on the planet and, after all, the robotic. Elon stated the battery manufacturing facility is now operational in Giga Texas.
I don’t know the way a lot Elon invested on this epic occasion, however he described it as “Killer!” In impact!
