Nexter.org keeps in touch with the latest news and announcements from the most famous tech inventor and entrepreneur  – Elon Musk. Here’s what you might have missed.

Tesla Autopilot’s update

Tesla’s next software update will add fully self-driving features, Elon Musk promised recently. Tesla CEO Elon Musk claims a new Tesla software update is coming in August that will bring more autonomy to Autopilot. Musk tweeted early Sunday morning about Tesla Version 9.0 including major updates for Autopilot 2.0.

With what Musk calls “full self-driving features” the car will be able to drive itself. However, it doesn’t mean the new version will be fully safe. As you remember, there were already several crashes caused by Tesla autopilot mode. 

10,000th Supercharger station

The automaker has opened its 10,000th Supercharger station in Belleville, Ontario, Canada as part of a rapid expansion that (as of late May) included roughly 1,000 stations either in construction or at the permit phase.

Tesla’s Supercharger network has come a long, long way since it was available in a handful of California towns in late 2012.

Boring Company flamethrowers

Musk’s The Boring Company delivered the first 1,000 of a limited run of 20,000 TBC Flamethrowers to customers this weekend.

Musk’s Twitter thread started with a straight announcement, “First 1000 Boring Company Flamethrowers being picked up today!”

it. Although the product is clearly a flamethrower to anyone who possesses a pair of eyes, Musk noted (again) on Twitter that the item has been renamed “Not a Flamethrower” in order to comply with “regulatory/customs rules enacted to inhibit transport of anything called a Flamethrower.”

Musk tweeted “Flamethrower obv best way to light your fireplace/BBQ. No more need to use a dainty “match” to ignite! If no wood, just drop your flamethrower in fire place! It will generate way more warmth than a quaint pile of logs.”
