If you remember the slice-and-dice scene from 1997’s Cube … yeah, like that. Let’s hope that Musk limits Sentry Mode’s reaction to damage or theft to classical music, not Rick-style vengeance.And yes, the term “Sentry Mode” is likely to sound familiar to Marvel fans — Iron Man uses the term for a feature that allows for remote-operation of his Mark XLIII armor.Rick and Morty writers are back at work, but there’s still no date for the show’s return.First published Jan. 27, 4:11 p.m. PT. Update, 6:55 p.m. PT: Adds comment from Tesla.  Rough beta in 2 to 3 weeks— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 25, 2019 The best NYCC 2018 cosplay: Black Panther, Rick and Morty and more 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 82 Photos Share your voice CNET Magazine: Check out a sample of the stories in CNET’s newsstand edition.Follow the Money: This is how digital cash is changing the way we save, shop and work.

Adult Swim Tesla’s Elon Musk knows his Rick and Morty episodes.

Comments Elon Musk Tesla Electric Cars TV and Movies Car Culture Will Sentry Mode actually play Johann Sebastian Bach’s iconic Toccata and Fugue, that famed-from-horror-movies classical tune you may think of as Dracula’s theme? What exactly Sentry Mode entails is still mysterious. A Tesla rep told me in an email that the company wasn’t ready to say more than what Musk tweeted. Engadget has surmised that Sentry Mode will feature “always-on dash cam function or will switch on automatically when it senses a blow or break-in to the vehicle.”When asked about timing for the vehicle surveillance feature, Musk said on Friday he expected a “rough beta in two to three weeks.” Tesla Sentry Mode coming soon for all cars with Enhanced Autopilot https://t.co/x2buQWiABX— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 22, 2019 Tesla Let’s break down that sentence. Musk tweeted about Sentry Mode a few days ago, on Jan. 22, when a Tesla owner tweeted about a dent and wished the car featured “360 (degree) dash cam feature while parked.”And a Tesla owner’s wish is Musk’s command, apparently, as he responded, “Tesla Sentry Mode coming soon for all cars with Enhanced Autopilot.” Tagslast_img read more
