The SpaceX and Tesla CEO has been in the spotlight lately, and not because he invented a new groundbreaking gadget. It seems that the genius billionaire philanthropist is preaching the idea that we are all living in a simulation controlled by an AI. When he is not trying to prove that the Matrix is real, Elon Musk plays Overwatch, and he even tweets about it.
According to his official Twitter account, the Pay Pal inventor “highly recommends” the latest game that was released “by the good people of Blizzard.” That is, “if you like ultrafast team FPS action.” The tweet was accompanied by the game’s honest trailer that you can check out at the end of the article.
Blizzard managed to achieve the impossible with Overwatch. The multiplayer FPS managed to attract the attention of the fans at an unusual rate. People were queuing online in order to be able to buy the game. Now, a few weeks after its release, Overwatch has reached record sells and users.
One can even dare to compare the success it had with that of the company’s other outstanding multiplayer, World of Warcraft. Of course, as opposed to Overwatch’s new characters and plot, WoW had years of backstory in other Warcraft games and novels.
Judging by his recent statements, it makes sense that Elon Musk plays Overwatch. The action of the game is set in a distant future where the sentinel robots created by humans are threatening humankind. The story coincides with the scenario that the Tesla and SpaceX CEO has been talking about at different conferences.
He used to be called the real-life Iron Man. The Tony Stark of our generation, but now, he is seen as more of a Lex Luthor, even a Neo.
Due to his fear of artificial intelligence, Musk even created the non-profit organization OpenAI. The association is meant to protect our race in the case in which the ever-developing AI network will someday try and take over the world, enslaving humankind.
Even more, the scientist even invented a new device called the neural lace. The new piece of technology is meant to create a connection between humans and technology, thus avoiding the need for artificial intelligence.
