Elon Musk will reveal gesture based rocket design program

SpaceX and Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk has often been compared to a real life version of Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. Director Jon Favreau has even openly said that Musk inspired his depiction of Stark in the first Iron Man film. But now it seems as though the imitation has come full circle: Musk tweeted last night that he’d "figured out how to design rocket parts just w[ith] hand movements," and would post a video of the process "next week." Favreau tweeted at Musk asking: "Like in Iron Man?" And Musk responded in the affirmative.
We’ve reached out to SpaceX and will update once we hear any further details of the system. But between the tweets and Musk’s recent publication of his plans for the futuristic Hyperloop transportation system, the parallels between his life and that of Tony Stark’s seem more reasonable every day.
