Video: Robert Scoble Rides in Tesla Electric Roadster with Elon Musk

Famous blogger Robert Scoble was hanging out with Jason Calacanis (of Weblogs Inc. fame, among other things) when they met up with Tesla Motors chairman and investor Elon Musk. They had their video-capable cellphones, he had his production Tesla (we wrote about it here), so Scoble ended up in the passenger seat of the electric Roadster and interviewed Elon.

The video is embedded in the post below along with a few photos take by Scoble (warning: geeky dialogue, dark video, and you might get motion sickness. Also contains many instances of Scoble's trademark laugh).

For those curious about how electric cars compared to regular cars and hybrids when you take into account emissions produced to generate the electricity required, we recommend reading this Tesla white paper (pdf) on the subject.
