    A lot of backstory here as at one point Musk wanted Hotz to work for Tesla on autopilot, he created a system on his own "on par with tesla autopilot at first launch" then shut down by the NHTSA (or at least in part)... but today he open sourced the software he made. Will be very interesting to see what happens here. I'm sure Tesla, as well as many others will be looking over this code in the days and months to follow.

    Yes, its not hard to see open source black boxes proliferate like radar scanners did.
    A few masterclass algos and coders, and a gazillion Chinese miles.
    Cheap autonomous drive for all. (At least in countries served by ebay)
