PayPal, Tesla, SpaceX and SolarCity, a brilliant resumé for a brilliant man. However lets face it, at some point Elon Musk will probably move onto even bigger and better things.

  • Mar 27 2013: All kidding aside, I would love it if Solar City, Tesla or Spacex could work on the "Mr. Fusion" idea.

    It was funny and clever when they had it in the Back to the Future movies, but if you follow Solar City's distributed generation idea, the concept of a self contained generation system with high current, steady output night and day, rain or shine, would be very attractive.

    I remember reading that Honda was developing a natural gas powered fuel cell charging station for their electric cars, maybe Tesla can develop something similar?
