The dealer could be a factor.

Well if you want recent cars you'll have to think at least 10-30k even at dealers, and those would be used. germany actually tried to reduce the number of used cars by giving serious incentives for scrapping older cars and buying a new one.

But I must admit if the tesla comes with black tinted windows it might be nice. I'd still get a cheaper porsche though (a Tesla that would be usable in germany would cost at least 75k)

You know you're in a real niche market when Porsche is a cheaper option.

Connections  ;)

well in germany most german cars are a little cheaper than they are in the US, and having relatives in the right places helps too (GO my 5000-strong family-clan-thingy!)

I dunno about your country but here we get like a $7,000 or more tax credit if we got an electric car.

I get wanked off in my face and the government takes another 25% added on top of shipping.

the only problem i could see is for countries with hardly any recharge stations, it'd be really bad for the EV user.

on the other hand, proper insulating on the EV could actually mean better flood tolerance for EV user, since theres a lot less mechanical parts to worry about.

The recharge stations aren't an issue (at least not in berlin) there are lots of parking lots with chargin stations (although you do need to pay for some of them) and most garages offer charging for free. Also almost all gas stations offer charging booths as well. I'm not saying that the Tesla is bad (although I think it would be fun to drive a Bt-7 or a marder2 on the autobahn, just for the lols) but the locally engineered cars are usually cheaper (I think we also get government aid if certain qualifications are met), heck even the french cars are cheaper due to the toll-free EU.

EV is generally more expensive.

Tesla cars actually aren't even available at dealers because they would be too expensive once a middleman was cut in - which is why they can't be sold in Texas. You directly to Tesla to get a Tesla car.

edit: Check this out, a new augmented reality thing trying to one up google glass: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_uuIEaNb-E

Looks like it's going to be a lot better too.

This is kinda interesting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eI-6thX-VI

It'd be kinda doofy holding it up to your face to talk... you'd probably want a blue tooth headset, but I could see it being pretty cool for wearing while you're exercising or something. Then again, I guess you'd want wireless earbuds or something otherwise you'd have a cord slapping all over the place.

Soooooo... overall I dunno. Watch accessories are kinda out in my book, so I dunno how well it'll do in retrospect.

Smartshoes, now that'd be interesting... actually wait, that would totally suck. Smartglasses! Like glasses that don't look lame as hell that have augmented reality stuff AND function like a cellphone and mini computer. They'd really have to not look lame though... Like Oakleys or something. That, or contacts.

You know, the day when we can have contacts that function like a full fledged computer with augmented reality and such, that'll be the day. Or better yet, eye implants so you won't have to put crap in your eye all the time.

I think before we're able to scale it down that much we're going to be able to directly interfere with nerve signals using EMG and EEG technology, instead of having a screen the nerves will be directly stimulated. I#m just saying that because where in that tiny contact are you going to hide a battery, a processor, a sim card and a screen?

Ok, so we have a screen (which we already had with samsungs transparent screens), I think the power problem (actually all problems) could be solved by wearing a headband that incorporates all teh hardware and then sends the necessary screen data + the energy to the contact.

Hah. Good luck getting girls to wear headbands. Maybe a necklace/choker or something, but headband is just silly.
