Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced another project of Tesla and this time it defines the power of technology by creating humanoid robots which are on the next level. With a clear vision, the company defines the robot who will do anything that humans don’t want to do. 


Elon Musk first unveiled the idea at Tesla’s AI Day 2021 and a model for the same was disclosed on 30th of September at AI Day 2022. Musk said "it is expected to cost much less than a car," and went on to guess "probably less than $20,000." 


Any technology/machines come with unique features and so do these Tesla Bots. Elon says, the robots will be friendly and abolish any boring or risky tasks from performing any logistic or machinery task to easily used for home users such as picking up groceries. This looks to be a project they're seriously exploring, unlike the Tesla Phone and other ideas that have stayed concepts.


Tesla Bots are initially positioned to replace people in repetitive, boring, and dangerous tasks. But the vision is for them to serve millions of households, such as cooking, mowing lawns, and caring for the elderly.” says Elon Musk in his piece, Believing in Technology for a better future, in the Cyberspace Administration of China’s publication:


Further, taking safety precautions, Musk says it's important for the robot to have a localized chip that can't be updated remotely. And to be careful to make sure "this doesn't become a dystopian situation," he wants it to comply with anyone who tells it to stop doing whatever it is doing.The robot's max speed is said to be 5 MPH, and it stands 5'8" (173 cm) tall, and weighs 125 lb , with a 45 pound carrying capacity. 


Will this new invention from Tesla be revolutionary? We will only know when it hits the market.
