But Elon Musk thinks Hyperloops and tunnels with high-speed sleds to shortcut traffic are the way to go. It's kind of interesting that a man who has made electric cars that are basically self-driving and proposed using space rockets for super-fast international flightswouldn't also see some merit in flying cars. After all, Uber's plans for what are basically passenger drones seems to offer a happy medium between his own designs for the future of ground and flight-based transit. But Musk made it very clear on Twitter that he is not a fan of where Uber would like to take things. "If you love drones above your house, you'll really love vast numbers of 'cars' flying over your head that are 1,000 times bigger and noisier and blow away anything that isn't nailed down when they land," he tweeted sarcastically when asked about Uber's "Elevate" project being compared to his Hyperloop design. Ouch. Burn. But Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi was happy to take the high road in his response by accepting Musk's challenge to improve the company's future designs while also paying the Tesla Motors, SpaceX and Boring Company CEO a compliment. "Challenge accepted," Khosrowshahi tweeted. "Improved battery tech (thx 2 @elonmusk) and multiple smaller rotors will be much more efficient and avoid noise + environmental pollution." Clearly Uber has already considered the criticisms Musk brings to bear and started work on solutions. What's more instructive here is the different tactics used by each executive. When challenged, Musk responded by defensively lashing out against a company being framed as a competitor.
