Elon Musk, the business’s CEO, announced during the ‘Tesla AI Day’ that the company is working on a Tesla Bot, a bi-pedal humanoid robot capable of doing dangerous, monotonous, or tedious activities. It will stand 5 feet 8 inches tall, weigh 125 pounds (56 kilograms), and move at a speed of 5 miles per hour (8 kilometers per hour).
Tesla Bot: Whats it for?
Tesla’s AI Day presentation ended with an unexpected unveiling, with Musk revealing scant specifics about the slightly eerie, Slenderman-like robot beyond a few PowerPoint slides. He expects the 5-foot-8-inch robot to weigh 125 pounds and be constructed of “lightweight materials.”
The Tesla Bot, according to one presentation, would remove “dangerous, repetitive, boring chores,” and Musk gave an example, saying the robot might be instructed to “go to the shop and get… the following foodstuffs.” Although such a duty is not exceptionally hazardous, you may find it monotonous and dull.
Musk, who is known for making wild predictions about the future, riffed on how he sees Tesla Bot affecting the future of employment as well. “I believe this will be extremely profound,” he predicted. “Physical labor will essentially be a choice in the future. You can do it if you want to, but you won’t have to.”
