Here’s what you need to know about the Tesla Bot.

  • Musk showed off a few slides while discussing the Tesla Bot at the end of the Tesla AI Day event.
  • The company CEO said that the goal is to have a prototype of the robot ready to go next year.
  • According to Musk, the Tesla Bot will make use of the company’s self-driving car software to navigate city streets.
  • This could allow it to perform tasks, such as grocery shopping.
  • He also floated around the idea of the robots replacing physical laborers.
  • Of course, Musk does nothing without a little flair, which is why he was joined on stage by a dancing Tesla Bot.
  • Okay, it wasn’t actually a robot but was instead a person in a suit made to look like one.
  • Still, the point stands that Musk really is planning for this Tesla Bot to mimic human movement.
  • However, that doesn’t mean robot overlords are going to take over.
  • Elon Musk confirmed that the average person would be able to outrun and overpower a Tesla Bot.
  • So at least there’s that reassurance that the apocalypse is still a further way off.

The idea of humanoid robots running about isn’t as far-fetched as some might think. Boston Dynamics has been working on its own robots for years now with some impressive results. You can follow this link to check out a video of their Atlas in action a couple of years ago.
