    Though it's not very clear, this video shows a lower angle and you can kind of see more of the mechanics:

    Not going to bed, it's morning out here (well, it was morning when I wrote that, now it is evening).

    Yeah, the official video has the best audio but the home video from the front row shows more of the "nut runners" that Elon refers to.

    Pretty cool!

    Technically battery swapping is cool, but I don't see how you could make that functional business. Some special cases, like taxi companies or like that could use it, but for individual persons just the sheer number of batteries needed in swap station and their different degradation levels makes this doubtful at best.

    Maybe if you could "lease" battery pack for long road trip so that you get your own back after the trip, then maybe, just maybe.

    About that video, I seem to have problem watching any Vimeo videos on Tesla site, but they work on Vimeo site. Anybody have any clue why? I use FF whatsthatversion 21 and newest flash on 64bit Win7 prof. Any videos from youtube work OK.

    Video shows on Tesla site, but it never starts to download/stream, so it is stuck on starting screen.

    I also use FF and have no trouble. Do you use NoScript or other filter? I often have to update settings on a given site.
