First we were subjected to Insane and then Ludicrous acceleration. Next came protection for smog, pollution, and, well, bioweapon fallout, with the aptly named Bioweapon Defense Mode. Not one to rest on his laurels, Elon just announced Autopilot will get its most significant update yet, and in addition to mundane things like SAVING LIVES by being able to use the radar system in ways previously thought impossible, and by seeing under/through/around the car ahead of you so your Tesla will know what is going on further ahead in traffic, Autopilot will now also detect UFOs – so long as they land (or maybe hover just above) the road.

This is all rolling out in version 8 of the software, which is expected to be released in two weeks time. Exciting times ahead!
