    I'm glad they're getting a chance to unwind a bit while they work hard to get us all our Mode Xs.

    it would be fun to craft up a "rocket launcher" with a string of paper towel tubes along the inside bottom of the door. Lots of great ideas for stuff to mount on the inside of the doors.

    Until I zoomed in I thought that might be Elon in the Santa costume.

    Bit disappointed. Surely he's not that busy?

    One more X-mas related video:


    Very cool display, not only for the holidays but also to show the detail level control over the components in the Model X.
    We now also know how they stress test the Falcon Wing Doors :smile:

    EDIT: Sorry, the video was pulled (not by me).
    EDIT2: Link replaced with Tesla posted one

    Wow that Video!
    Amazing to see the control the engineers have over each LED, door...

    I wonder what this will open up in the future, some nice animation with the headlights when you start the car? or when you walk up to it? Amazing...!

    I kind of liked the first one better with the shy engineers introducing there top secret project and the reaction of the audience. This was redone professionally.

    I missed that one. Too bad they removed it. I would have liked to see that.
