Tesla has popularized the modern electric car and will potentially develop the first self driving cars.

SpaceX has revolutionized the launch industry twice already and is set to bring about a space renaissance.

Now Elon Musk also has The Boring Company, Neuralink, and OpenAI. The Boring Company might revolutionize transportation within cities, Neuralink might solve neurological diseases and bring about the cyborg future, and OpenAI might bring about true general purpose artificial intelligence. It's also possible that all three of these companies will fail horribly but only time will tell.

So what field do you think Elon Musk will focus on next? He's seemingly focused on hail marys over safe ventures and just kinda jumps around. Even the silliest guess could end up being true lol.


The absolute craziest:

Physics research facility to figure out if we are in the matrix and how to escape from it.  

He has talked about us being in a simulation, before


Maybe could get into robotics. That seems like his type of thing.

Or glasses free 3D displays. He really seems to like sci fi things.


Second craziest:


Elon Musk will revolutionize recycling and fund ways to completely eliminate all garbage.  

*It's the reverse 3d printer.  Breaks everything down into concentrated elemental parts from the original components*

With clean, cheap energy, there won't be much concern about the cost and ecological effects of the energy production for the process.  

The only concern is whether breaking such things down is ecologically the best thing to do.  


Could use a mini black hole for that. Drop stuff in, get hawking radiation out.
