by Betsey Lippmeier

Elon Musk, founder of SolarCity, Tesla Motors, and Space Exploration Technologies Corporation (Space X) demonstrates the  Iron Man design technology at his fingertips inside the rocket-making labs of his company Space X.

Musk first demonstrates how he can grab, rotate and zoom in on a model of SpaceX’s Merlin rocket engine on a computer screen by waving his hands. He then shows how the full Computer Aided Design  model of the rocket engine can be manipulated on a bigger screen and in 3D if the user is wearing special glasses.
