Multi-billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk has revealed on Twitter that Tesla is planning to offer the Solar Roof internationally “later this year”.

“Tesla is ramping up Solar Roof installation across the USA! Training will be provided, so no prior experience needed,” Musk tweeted recently. “Looking forward to international expansion later this year,” he added.

Back in October, Musk has unveiled the third version of Tesla’s solar-roof product and according to Musk, this third iteration of the electricity-generating house-topper will be cheaper, easier, and faster to install than its predecessors.

The company said that it has increased power density in the third version of the Solar Roof tiles, reduced the parts used in the tiles by half and brought down costs substantially compared to the second generation tiles, Engadget reported.

The estimated cost of a 2,000-square-foot solar roof is $33,950 and comes with a 25-year warranty. Telsa is doing the installation themselves, and aims to complete the whole job in just eight hours.

Amazon is reportedly working on a full-fledged cloud gaming platform under the code name Project Tempo, similar to Google’s Stadia and Nvidia’s GeForce Now.

The retail giant has been working on a game called Crucible ever since 2014 and along with that game, the company is going to bring another game called New World, which will be a multiplayer online game and will fit perfectly in the multiplayer game genre, reports The New York Times.

“The big picture is about trying to take the best of Amazon and bringing it to games,” the report quoted Mike Frazzini, Amazon’s vice president for game services and studios as saying.

“We have been working for a while, but it takes a long time to make games, and we’re bringing a lot of Amazon practices to making games,” Frazzini added.

When it comes to cloud-based gaming, Amazon will have to compete with Microsoft and Google. Both of them already have their feet firmly planted in the space, Microsoft with Project xCloud and Google with Stadia.
