Disable FWD Pillar Button When Child Protection Lock is Enabled

Problem: the child-protection lock for the falcon wing doors only prevents a child from opening the FWDs. It does not turn off the switch for purposes of closing the doors.

Solution: Disable this FWD button on the pillar when the child protection lock is enabled.

Imagine its hot AF 🔥 out and you're coming back from the waterpark at the end of the day with your kids. Everyone is exhausted and pissed - its 110F outside.

When your Tesla mobile app notices that you are getting close to the car (say in the parking lot), the climate system is turned on and starts to cool down the crazy hot car to its last known temperature setting. Now you have a nice cool car waiting for you... more »

detect when other drivers glance at you

We are hard-wired to detect the gaze of other humans, even in our peripheral vision. We use glances to communicate our need to for someone to pay attention - such as getting the eye contact of a driver when we are crossing the street, to ensure they see us and will avoid hitting us.
