Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX, has surprised the world time and again with his unique innovations and inventions. His recent breakthrough innovation was the Tesla car and semi-truck. However, Elon Musk has recently executed a project for the Indian market that was for quite some time in his pipeline. His company has developed escape pods that can be used to escape out of home when relatives arrive.


Addressing a press conference that he had organized on Tuesday, Elon Musk said “India is very close to my heart. Whenever I invented a breakthrough product, I used to get mails and messages from my friends in India requesting me to innovate something for the Indian market. One day I was talking with a close friend from India on Skype and we were discussing, rather debating about a topic in aerospace engineering and then he had to leave because his relatives had arrived unexpectedly. I got a little vexed because I was winning. This is when it struck me that I should develop an escape pod for the Indian market that would help Indians avoid relatives whenever they want to. Yes I know the thought process escalated quickly but this is how I get most of my ideas.” Explaining about the product he added “The escape pod has been named Phir Se Ud Chala. The name was finalized after a lot of deliberation and research. This is how it works – When you realize a relative has arrived unexpectedly, all you need to do is sit on the pod and press one of the three buttons – Roam Around, Escape and Save My Life, depending on how badly you want to avoid the relative. The escape pod is enabled with collision sensors, GPS navigations, WiFi, charging input as well a display screen. All you need to do is just press a button and fly away. You can also set the duration for which you need to be away from your home, at the end of which the pod will bring you back to your home.”

This was when a reporter asked him for his views on the performance of current government. Unable to understand the relevance of the question, Elon Musk sat on the pod, pressed the Save My Life button and flew away.
