I LOVE THE CAR.

OTHER THAN THAT, YOURECENTLY MADE ALL THE

PATENTS FOR TESLA AVAILABLETO EVERYBODY.

OUR PATENTED TECHNOLOGY

OF TESLA.

WHY ARE YOU GIVING AWAY THESTORE LIKE THAT.

WHY ARE YOU BEING THE EDWARDSNOWDEN OF YOU

>> RIGHT. I'M NOT SURE IF THISIS

THE RIGHT ANALOGY, BUT IF WEARE ALL ON A SHIP TOGETHER

AND WE-- AND THERE'S SOMEHOLES IN THE SHIP AND WE

ARE BAILING WATER OUT, ANDWE HAVE A GREAT DESIGN FOR A

BUCKET, THEN YOU KNOW, EVENIF WE ARE BAILING OUT WAY

BETTER THAN EVERYBODY ELSE,WE SHOULD PROBABLY STILL

SHARE THE BUCKET DESIGN.

BECAUSE WE'RE ALL GOING TOSINK.

(APPLAUSE)>> Stephen: LAST QUESTION,

YOU'RE A FUTURE MAN, WHERE IS MYJET PACK.

ON YOUTUBE THERE IS A LOT OFINTERESTING VIDEO.

TO GET IN THE JET PACK

>> Stephen: HAVE YOU WORKEDON A JET PACK OF YOUR OWN.

>> I HAVEN'T, NO.

NO, I-- I'M NOT SURE ABOUT JETPACKS.

THERE IS SOME FUNDAMENTALPHYSICS THAT MAKE IT VERY

DIFFICULT TO HAVE A JET PACKIT WOULD BE VERY NOISY.

>> Stephen: IT'S HARD TO LAND A ROCKET ON ITS TAIL

TOO.

>> TRUE.

>> Stephen: EYES ON THEPRIZE.

>> BUT YOU KNOW, SOMETHING ITHINK WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE

IS IF THAT AIRCRAFT SHOULDHAVE VERTICAL TAKEOFF AND

LANDING.

>> Stephen: LIKE A HARRIER.

>> KIND OF LIKE A HARRIERBUT IT'S BETTER TO MOVE WITH

THE FAN THEN IT IS TO DUCTTHE AIR.

>> Stephen: RIGHT NOW THEHARRIER DOES IT WITH DUCTS?

AND DUCT TAPE, ONE IMAGINES.

DRIVEN-- TRADITIONAL JETAIRCRAFT LIKE WHEN YOU SEE

SOMETHING CALLED A JETENGINE LIKE ON A TRIPLE 7,

IT'S GOT THAT HUGE-- ITLOOKS HUGE, AND THAT IS

BECAUSE MOST OF THEPROPULSION IS REALLY COMING

FROM THE FAN.

>> Stephen: REALLY IT'S APROP PLANE THAT THEY DRESSED

UP TO LOOK LIKE A JET.

ACTUALLY MORE EFFICIENT TOHAVE AN OPEN FAN IF YOU JUST

IF YOU HAVE A DUCTSITUATION.

ARE GOING TO BLOW MY MINDWITH?

>> WELL-- WHAT DO YOU WISHTHERE WAS?

RELATIONSHIP WITH THEMACHINE AND I WOULD HAVE A

DISCUSSION OF MY NEEDS ANDIT WOULD DO IT.
