MUSKWATCH: Real-Life X-Wing and Helicarrier

Elon Musk, the real world’s next-best-thing to Tony Stark, just dropped word of some more crazy, border-line sci-fi inventions he has on the way, so you know what that means: time for another edition of MUSKWATCH!

Join Jessica Chobot as she checks out Elon‘s plans for an X-Wing modification to his Space-X ships, a seabound autonomous spaceport drone that’s just one mod away from being a SHIELD helicarrier, and his warning that a real-world SkyNet could kill us in as little as five years – all on today’s Nerdist News!

Don’t miss Adam Pally debating Malik on Versus vs. Versus, catch the latest episode of The Dan Cave, and let us know in the comments below which Elon Musk prediction will happen first: robot apocalypse or Mars colony? Have a great Thanksgiving, and we’ll see you guys Monday!

    I’m not terribly afraid of AI.  It’s a fun story.. a fun fantasy… the idea that AI would attack or kill or replace us in some way… but it is fiction.  Not gonna happen.

      Once upon a time, traveling in space was fiction too.  Just sayin.  
      I’m not necessarily terrified of AI, but it is certainly an area where the world should be stepping carefully.
