ELON MUSK INTRODUCES HUMANOID ROBOT PROTOTYPE AT TESLA AI DAY
It was on last year’s AI day that Musk introduced the humanoid robot project and said it could be launched the following year.
The robot would do the work people do not like to do.
Musk said at the time that the robot would “eliminate dangerous, repetitive, tedious tasks.”
“Optimus could ultimately address global labor shortages, and in the short term could be able to transport goods around a factory,” Musk had said in January, according to Reuters.
