Hacker GeoHot prevented by Tesla, the company's lawyers

Cracker Ge0Hot widely known in narrow circles as the man who hacked the iPhone and PS3 gaming system. In recent years, the hacker settled down and took himself in hand, then decided to engage in creative activities. For example, last year he founded a startup , in which unsuccessfully tried to develop a universal autopilot system, suitable for almost any car. Almost before the new year, the programmer seems to have given up on some time lost sight of, but showed up under very interesting circumstances, once again in the center of the scandal.

The Guy wanted to buy a car the Model S and even pre-order, but lawyers Elon musk has contacted Hotz and advised him not to violate the laws related to intellectual property.

After Receiving such an unexpected response while trying to get my prepaid car, Hotz was upset, and then just canceled the order. The website Electrek reports that Ge0Hot continued working on a universal autopilot in the new OpenPilot project, which planned to adapt their development to Tesla products, than probably attracted unwanted attention.

However, nothing prevents Hotz to buy the right car model with hands or ask friends to make a purchase.
