Robot 3000, Apple and Tesla, Events.
Video tip: German Paravan has fitted a Tesla Model S with one of its Robot 3000 – an automated arm that can lift a wheelchair out of the car’s boot and move it all the way to the driver’s door. The arm can even open and close the boot automatically.
Reading tip: Apple CEO Tim Cook is not without controversy. U.S. Marketwatch therefore spins the idea of Apple buying Tesla a little further, imagining that Elon Musk would take over the reins of the IT giant.
