Elon Musk Unveils The ‘Tesla Bot’

 Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk is known for his

innovative ideas and designs, but his latest unveiling is

set to be a total game changer. During the recent Tesla

A.I. Day presentation, Elon Musk revealed the first look

at the “Tesla Bot”—which is described as a humanoid A.I.

(artificial intelligence) robot created to eliminate

“dangerous, repetitive, boring tasks” and specifically

assign the robot to do them for you.

@CNET reports, Elon Musk confirmed that the Tesla Bot

will run on the very same A.I. that is used in Tesla

vehicles. Furthermore, it has a height of 5-foot-8-inches

and estimated to weigh around 125 pounds while being

built from what’s described as “lightweight materials,”

according to Musk. The robot’s head will include various

cameras (also used in current Tesla vehicles) that sense

the environment and contain screen-to-display

information. The internal components of the Tesla Bot is

said to operate using Tesla’s Full Self-Driving computer.

Speaking during the presentation, Elon Musk said of the

robot that “It’s intended to be friendly and navigate

through a world built for humans.” He added that the

Tesla Bot would eliminate “dangerous, repetitive, boring

tasks,” such as shopping. He provided an example saying

that the robot could “go to the store and get … the

following groceries.” As for when you can expect it, well

Musk said that the prototype for the Tesla Bot will likely

be ready sometime next year.

 

Towards the end of the presentation, Musk made hopeful declarations regarding how the Tesla Bot will change the way we currently work.

“This, I think, will be quite profound. Essentially, in the

future, physical work will be a choice. If you want to do it,

you can, but you won’t need to do it,” he said. The dawn of

a new age is something that Elon Musk created. A pioneer

for humanity.
