The CEO of Lucid Motors reveals the most important lesson he learned from Elon Musk when he worked for him at Tesla

Businessinsider - Sat, 07/11/2020 - 16:22

  • Lucid Motors CEO Peter Rawlinson worked for Tesla CEO Elon Musk from 2009 to 2012.
  • Rawlinson said the biggest lesson he learned from Musk is the importance of relentless optimism.
  • "Sometimes you have to put all your chips in," Rawlinson said.

Peter Rawlinson worked for Tesla CEO Elon Musk from 2009-2012 as he led the development of the electric-car maker's groundbreaking Model S sedan. Now the chief executive of the electric-vehicle startup Lucid Motors, Rawlinson learned from Musk the importance of relentless optimism.

"I really believe that success can beget success," Rawlinson said in an interview with Business Insider. "It can be a self-fulfilling prophecy if you're really committed and you're all in, and everyone at Lucid knows I am. And that's the leadership I hope I provide."

If you focus too much on what might go wrong, it can decrease your odds of achieving your goals, he added.

"Sometimes you have to put all your chips in," he said.

Musk, Rawlinson said, demonstrated his commitment to success "on an hour-by-hour basis." Rawlinson has taken that attitude to Lucid, which he joined in 2013 (he became the company's CEO in 2019). His confidence in the company and its debut vehicle, the Air luxury sedan, is driven by Lucid's in-house engineering and design efforts. According to the company, the Air will be able to drive over 400 miles between charges and accelerate from 0-60 mph in under 2.5 seconds. Those specs would make the Air competitive with the Model S, which, depending on the trim, has a maximum range of 402 miles and a 2.3-second 0-60 mph time.

"We're creating a car which is going to be the best car in the world," Rawlinson said. "People are going to want it."

Lucid will unveil the production version of the Air in September before beginning production next year. The vehicle's price will start "well north" of $100,000, Rawlinson said.

This virtual reality motion simulator could be used to train military pilots — see how to works

Businessinsider - Sat, 07/11/2020 - 15:45

  • New Zealand startup Eight360 created, a virtual reality motion simulator.
  • Nova is a motion simulator that can make VR feel more real by turning in any direction. 
  • Creators see the device being used for military training and e-racing in the future. 
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Eight360, a startup in Wellington, New Zealand has a way of tricking your brain into thinking you're driving a racecar, riding a rollercoaster, or even flying a jet.

The company's VR motion simulator, NOVA, can turn 180 degrees in any direction in only one second, combining visual, audio, and physical elements to make the experience as realistic as possible. Eight360 even says that this scary-looking contraption makes motion sickness less of a problem, because it matches up what the user is seeing to what they're feeling.

At $150,000 per year for a lease, the Nova probably isn't going to show up in many homes, though it could become standard in esports lounges. Instead, Eight360 is promoting the device as a way for racecar drivers to put in extra practice time off the track, or to practice esports, and for military training for pilots.

Here's how it works.

Nova is an "untethered VR motion simulator," making virtual reality games and training programs feel more real by rotating in any direction.

Eight360 says that Nova could be used for training, education, and fun.

Inside and wearing a VR headset, the user has full audio, visual, and physical immersion.

CEO Terry Miller has called it "the crazy spinning ball of death."

Nova is a combination of standard parts, like gears and a motor, supplemented with modular parts for the best VR experience.

The whole thing weighs about 1,100 lbs, and can be transported on a pallet or forklift.

The sphere, which has been compared to a "human-sized hamster ball," is 5.9 feet in diameter, needing just a 6.5 square foot area.

It works with some Windows games right off the shelf, making roller coaster simulators and racing games feel more realistic.

While Nova could definitely improve the gaming experience, it's too expensive to be practical for widespread use. Eight360 is looking to lease out the Nova for $150,000 per year.

Instead, the company is looking at other industries, like e-racing and defense training.

The seat and controls can be swapped out to better fit a particular need, like training pilots to fly a certain aircraft.
