Elon Musk's Iron Man 'Inspired' Hologram Project - Details Coming Soon

After the Hyperloop proved to be a well talked-about engineering prospect for the South African Billionaire, it seems that he wasn't quite finished trying to revolutionise the world we live in.

Talking on Twitter, Mr Musk revealed that they had designed rocket parts (I assume space rockets, for Musk's SpaceX company, rather than military rockets) by just moving their hands and then sending it to be printed in titanium.

Using hand gestures to build stuff isn't a new idea but it's still in its infancy and given the extremely high precision required in making spacecraft components, one can't help but be intrigued as to how they did it. Apparently it involves holograms and Iron Man.

Musk promises a video this coming week.
