His most recent uptaking includes investing $16.5 million USD into a soon-to-launch mobile robot-powered pizza restaurant, Stellar Pizza. At the beginning of the year, Hypebeast reported that the founding members include three former SpaceX engineers, Benson Tsai, Brian Langone and James Wahawisan who have developed the automated truck service promising to deliver gourmet pies right to your doorstep.

Stellar Pizza is slated to launch at the University of California this Fall. Currently, the truck has a capacity of making 420 pizzas, with a single pizza taking less than five minutes to prepare.
