At the Tesla shareholder’s meeting last week, CEO Elon Musk dropped hints that he was thinking of doing something “controversial” with regards to Tesla’s patents.
Engadget reports that Musk, speaking at the UK launch of the Model S, said that he wants to open up the designs for Tesla’s Supercharger system to create a standard technical specification that other electric car makers can adopt.
When Musk has a big idea, he typically writes about it. He pulled an all-nighter to write his Hyperloop manifesto.
