Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX and Tesla Motors has often been compared to Tony Stark aka Iron Man. Both Musk and the facilities at SpaceX have had brief cameo appearances in Iron Man 2, whilst director Jon Favreau was open about the fact that Musk had been the inspiration behind the first Iron Man movie.

Elon Musk Building A Gesture Based System Like Iron Man

Now it seems that Musk is about to make Tony Stark a reality after it has been revealed in a tweet that he has “figured out how to design rocket parts just with hand movements.” Favreau tweeted asking “Like in Iron Man?”, and Musk responded that was the plan.

With these tweets and the plans for the Hyperloop transportation system, it’s no wonder that Musk is compared to Iron Man.
