Plans for Tesla humanoid robots unveiled

Friday 27 Aug 2021

Elon Musk has revealed that his company, Tesla, is working on a prototype of a human robot that he says will be available next year. According to The Verge, the humanoid robot that the Elon Musk-owned Tesla is working on will be around five feet, eight inches tall. It will weigh 125 pounds, according to the Tesla CEO, and will have a screen as its face.

With its upcoming humanoid robot that will be powered by artificial intelligence (AI), Tesla plans to "develop the next generation of automation, including a general purpose, bi-pedal, humanoid robot capable of performing tasks that are unsafe, repetitive or boring."

According to Elon Musk, the AI-powered humanoid robot is being designed by Tesla at a mechanical level. "You can run away from it and most likely overpower it," Musk said as quoted by The Verge.

Tesla's humanoid robot will not, however, be the first humanoid robot to ever exist. Other examples of humanoid robots that have been made include Sophia the Humanoid Robot and the FEDOR humanoid robots Russia sent to outer space in 2018.
