The much-anticipated Cybertruck, according to Elon Musk, will be “waterproof enough to serve momentarily as a boat,” which has caused Twitter to erupt once more. It’s tough to determine whether Musk is being serious or just having a little fun given his legendary online persona.
Nevertheless, the tweet triggered a series of responses (mainly negative).
According to Musk’s tweet from Thursday, “Cybertruck will be waterproof enough to temporarily double as a boat, so it can cross rivers, lakes, and even calm seas.”
Needs must be able to traverse the channel to get from Starbase to South Padre Island, he continued. Or perhaps you could simply fly privately?
In 2019, Musk initially unveiled the bulky metal pickup truck known as the Tesla Cybertruck, which is powered by an electric battery. Although the strange-looking car has garnered a lot of online attention for its “futuristic” angular shape, it is yet unknown when it will begin traveling on public roads.
You might probably recall its controversial debut when Tesla’s lead designer Franz von Holzhausen threw a steel ball through the window to demonstrate the vehicle’s “bulletproof” qualities. Sadly, it was not impervious to bullets.
Musk chuckled, “Oh my f**king god. “Perhaps that was a tad difficult!”
Musk’s assertion about Cybertruck’s seagoing capabilities raised some skeptics’ eyebrows given its unpredictability.
Additionally, today is Tesla’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) Day, and Musk is supposed to present a working prototype of the new robot Optimus on that occasion (yes, it is named for Optimus Prime from Transformers). In order to set thousands of robots to work in Tesla plants in the near future, Musk argues that the robots will be “general purpose,” or able to do a variety of jobs given to them.
