Elon Musk's New Hologram Project Invites 'Iron Man' Comparisons

Nerval's Lobster (2598977) writes "In the “Iron Man” trilogy, billionaire inventor Tony Stark uses a gesture-controlled hologram to draft new designs of the titular armor, sending virtual parts flying around his lab with the flick of a wrist. Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk—who is often compared to Stark by the tech press—is apparently creating the real-life equivalent of that fictional hologram system. “We figured out how to design rocket parts just w hand movements through the air (seriously),” he Tweeted August 23. “Now need a high frame rate holograph generator.” In a follow-up Tweet, he added: “Will post video next week of designing a rocket part with hand gestures & then immediately printing it in titanium.” But Musk has no plans to actually make an Iron Man-inspired suit of armor. “I am not going to make an IM suit,” he wrote on Twitter, “however design by hand-manipulated hologram is actually useful.”"
