Elon Musk dropped some big hints today. Watch the above video interview - the number and magnitude of Mr. Musk's suppressed smiles - taken in context-cluster with his vocal qualities (paralanguage) and verbals - all strongly suggest that Mr. Musk will be announcing another major Tesla innovation - perhaps a fully electric car priced in the $20 - $25 range.
Suppressed smiles are a super-set of what Dr. Paul Ekman has coined as "Duping Delight". Much like an eight year old boy who cannot keep a secret - he is bursting at his emotional seems and this positive emotion leaks out. Who could blame him?
Thank you Mr. Musk.
