Tesla’s CYBRTRK trademark may have a hidden Easter Egg that reveals the silhouette of Elon Musk’s all-electric pickup truck. The hidden gem may just be the clearest depiction of the Cybertruck’s overall shape.
Tesla’s trademark Easter Egg comes after another was found in the invitation for the Cybertruck’s unveiling event. Tesla sent out invitations for its Cybertruck unveiling event last Thursday night on November 14.
The lucky few who were able to nab an invite immediately shared pictures of the official invitation on social media. Upon closer inspection, a few Tesla-enthusiasts noticed the Cybertruck's wheels in the background of the invitation. One Tesla enthusiast, LikeTeslaKim, zoomed in on the image and was able to get a clearer picture of the wheels.
Before the invitations were released, Tesla registered ‘Cybertruck’ and ‘CYBRTRK’ at the US Patent Office to trademark the names. Elon Musk, Tesla-enthusiasts, and media have always called the vehicle Cybertruck since it was announced. The other version of the name CYBRTRK has not been used much, but it seems to be the stylized version of the pickup truck’s name.
There may be a reason for the new spelling and font of Cybertruck, though. Venture Capitalist Jonathan Drake played around with the CYBRTRK trademark and may have found a second Easter Egg. When Drake rearranged the letters of CYBRTRK, he discovered that it depicted the silhouette of a truck, possibly Tesla’s all-electric pickup.
Based on Drake’s arrangement, Tesla’s Cybertruck seems to be bold and aggressive, as speculated by many in the past. In October, Musk said that Tesla pickup would look like an armored personal carrier (APC) from the future.
Armored APCs or APVs are used to transport personnel to combat zones. As such, they are sturdy, and their design reflects their resilience. Since the Cybertruck is, in fact, a pickup truck, it makes sense that Tesla moved away from its usual design. Elon Musk and the Cybertruck’s designer opted for a more rugged look instead, probably to fit its off-road capabilities.
Tesla will be unveiling the Cybertruck on November 21 based on the invitation. The event is already fully booked, though a number of Tesla enthusiasts have stated that they have been placed on a waiting list.
