About Chanan Bos

Chanan Bos Chanan grew up in a multicultural, multi-lingual environment that often gives him a unique perspective on a variety of topics. He is always in thought about big picture topics like AI, quantum physics, philosophy, Universal Basic Income, climate change, sci-fi concepts like the singularity, misinformation, and the list goes on. Currently, he is studying creative media & technology but already has diplomas in environmental sciences as well as business & management. His goal is to discourage linear thinking, bias, and confirmation bias whilst encouraging out-of-the-box thinking and helping people understand exponential progress. Chanan is very worried about his future and the future of humanity. That is why he has a tremendous admiration for Elon Musk and his companies, foremost because of their missions, philosophy, and intent to help humanity and its future. He sees Tesla as one of the few companies that can help us save ourselves from climate change.

This Startup Wants To Put Geothermal Panels In Underground Garages & Tunnels

December 2nd, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

Right now when you think of panels collecting energy, you would probably think of solar panels or those black panels that heat water, but if you already filled your roof with solar panels, what do you do next? This is one of the most ingenious startups I have seen in a while, a reminder that out of the box thinking can lead to completely new solutions to problems that don't require millions of dollars in R&


Lab-Grown Meat In Supermarkets Is Closer Than You Think, Thanks To Growth Medium Breakthrough

December 2nd, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

Multus Media plans to supply a lot of companies that will produce lab-grown meat. Acquiring and programming the stem cells needed for cultivated meat is only one part of the problem, while the other part is finding ways to feed those cells without growing a whole digestive system or whole animal. What we are talking about here is a very important component called the growth medium


Expert In Autonomous Flight Explains How It Compares To Tesla’s Full Self Driving — CleanTechnica Video Interview

November 10th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

There are about 100 companies out there developing eVTOL (electric vertical take off and landing) vehicles, but there are only a handful of companies developing the AI that will power them and one day turn them into robotaxis, autonomous delivery drones, and any other airborne function that does not require a pilot. One of the leaders in this field is Daedalean, a company best in Switzerland


Breaking! Tesla Model Y Production To Start ~Q1 2020 (Unofficial Leak)

October 15th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

This information is going to cause some controversy, because everything we knew, or thought we knew, about Tesla’s Model Y timeline is about to change. Originally, the Model Y was supposed to start shipping in "late 2020." Currently, Tesla's website says new orders will ship in Q1 2021. However, according to an anonymous source with a proven and reliable track record, Tesla is about to accelerate its plans and start production sometime around Q1 2020 at its Fremont factory. (We've also received the same information independently through a second-hand source.)


Daedalean & The AI That Knows Where Not To Land

September 21st, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

As someone who has recently became an owner of a fairly light and harmless drone, I know that almost everywhere in the world laws about it are absolutely bonkers. In my home country of the Netherlands, I can’t even fly it in my own backyard. Ironically, the King of the Netherlands, Willem-Alexander, may or may not have even gotten a fine for buying a small drone and flying it in his own backyard because the law states that no one may fly above property of Dutch royalty


Climate Catastrophe Protests — In The Netherlands, The Kids Take Politicians Back To School

September 21st, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

This week, schoolchildren and adults all over Europe and Australia are protesting government inaction on climate change. In the US, large portions of half the population are also protesting and the other half of the population is still deciding whether they “want” to believe in it — or, in the more advanced stages, whether to believe in the severity of the problem. Actually, it's not a problem, it's a full blown catastrophe, a complete and total destabilization of the world climate


This Is What A Tesla Will Soon Sound Like At Low Speeds

September 11th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

This is the day we all feared would come, the day when EVs no longer make the streets quieter and let us hear the songs of birds or talk to each other at a normal volume. Lawmakers in the US, Canada, and Europe have mandated laws that make fully electric vehicles (BEVs) audible at speeds under 30 km/h (18 mph) in the former two and under 20 km/h (12 mph) in the latter


Elon Musk Talks Tesla Terawatt-Hours. We Run Some Numbers.

July 31st, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

At CleanTechnica, we have already written a few articles about this, but until the Q2 investor call, it was just a theory. In fact, even some of my colleagues considered it bullish and so in some ways I consider this to be my theory and am extremely stoked that Elon confirmed it and that this will actually happen. My writing on this started in 2018 with the article “The Future We Need — From The Tesla Gigafactory To A Chain Of Terafactories.”


Self-Driving Gas Car — A Horse Led By A Carrot On A Stick?

July 13th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

Elon Musk has said that buying a car today that will not be upgradable to enable full autonomy is like buying a horse. It's implied that this means you should buy a Tesla, since we're not aware of any other cars on the market that will be upgradeable to full self-driving capability. But one topic that doesn't get discussed much is electric versus gasoline self-driving cars. Will people be able to buy gasoline self-driving cars? Well, I imagine Elon would call a self-driving gas car a horse with a carrot on a stick in front of it. Let's explore why


Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Future & What That Could Mean In Some Wild Scenarios

July 12th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

Elon Musk shook things up on Twitter a bit this week. Some fans got concerned Tesla would stop selling cars at some point, but the core point was simply that the value of Tesla cars will go up a lot once Full Self Driving is implemented. Elon clarified that what he meant was simply that the price was going to go up significantly
