    It will be interesting to see if something similar ever happens with SolarCity or SpaceX.

    I think this was a bold move, and it clearly shows that Tesla is about helping the world, and not making money. Now it time for the auto industry to open up it's vaults, and let the science take it's course.

    Peace!

    I don't think the entire auto industry is going to follow suite, but there have been indications that Tesla is really going to start making in-roads into the battery business. They're probably already chasing those massive effort/grants/aid that was set aside to improve battery technology by the federal government (Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR).

    I wonder if they'll open up those patents for good faith use too.

    I have to agree with you bruh. What if all those rumors of engines, and devices that was invented that didn't need fossil fuels,etc. were found out to be true? In a few years petroleum corps. could be a thing of the past as far as fuel goes.

    Peace!
