The past decade has seen the astronomical growth of Tesla as a brand, but also Elon Musk’s popularity. Tesla is seen as a brand of top-of-the-line rechargeable automobiles, while also symbolizing a leap into the future of technology. Cars are just the start of what Elon Musk wants to do with the Tesla brand. The home improvement industry, which has put a large focus on the environment these past few years, seems to be perfectly set up for Tesla to spread their influence. Tesla has teased new solar tiles for roofing, and this video shows us what the roofs of tomorrow may be like.
These new roofing tiles would be somewhat holographic in nature, and made of a textured glass that is built to last. These tiles would be able to withstand any weather, as well as offer a classic look to your home’s roof.
Viewed from the street, you roof will look completely normal. However, from the vantage point of above, they are reflective. They don’t break like traditional slate, clay, or terra cotta tiles, and collect energy straight from the source. What’s not to like?
