New Tesla microphone, TeslaMic, now on sale; Elon Musk builds on Caraoke feature
American electric vehicle and clean energy company Tesla will now be selling a microphone for in-car karaoke.
American electric vehicle and clean energy company Tesla will now be selling a microphone for in-car karaoke. According to TechCrunch, the TeslaMic is only available in China for the time being. The company introduced it amid the rollout of a Chinese New Year software update, which adds a karaoke platform called Leishi KTV to infotainment systems.
The microphone automatically pairs with the infotainment system, as per Tesla. The TeslaMic comes in a pack of two, so it could come in handy if users ever feel like parking somewhere with a date and belting out some duets.
The pack costs around USD 188 and with this Tesla is building on a 'Caraoke' feature it introduced in 2019, which had a more limited selection of tracks.
As per TechCrunch, it remains to be seen whether Tesla will sell the TeslaMic outside of China, though maybe users will be able to buy it with Dogecoin if it ever comes to the US.
In the meantime, there's an official Carpool Karaoke microphone that users can connect to their car's audio system.
Elon Musk says Biden treats Americans 'like fools'
(ANI) American billionaire Elon Musk slammed US President Joe Biden after the latter left out the name of Tesla in a post that talked about the future of electric vehicles in America.
Tesla CEO, Musk, apparently was miffed after the US President excluded the name of the electric vehicle manufacturer in a Twitter post where he said, "Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before."
Replying to Biden's Twitter post on the future electric vehicles in America, Musk wrote the name of "Tesla" in all caps. In another tweet, he said, "Biden is a damp Socks puppet in human form."
Musk also said that "Biden is treating the American public like fools".
He made these remarks after the US President met with executives from rival car companies General Motors and Ford Motor earlier this week.
The swipe comes after Biden invited CEOso of General Motors and Ford to the White House along with other business leaders to discuss his administration's Build Back Better legislation.
Interestingly, Biden invited executives from these companies last year when signed an executive order with the goal of making all vehicles sold in the US electric by 2030.
However, Musk, who is critical of the Biden administration, was omitted from the list.
Back in September, Tesla CEO had said that Biden administration of being "a little biased" and "seems to be" controlled by unions, Fox News reported.
