Synopsis >

From a scene in Iron Man to a scene in real life: SpaceX founder Elon Musk is seen here using hand gestures, manipulating a 3D computer image to aide in the design of a rocket engine, much like the fictional character Tony Stark in Hollywood blockbuster 'Iron Man 3'. Instead of using a traditional keyboard and mouse, Musk is using technology from Leap Motion and Siemens to alter a design real-time - and then send it to a 3D printer for manufacturing.
