Tesla Robot is about to release this year and claims to perform all the tedious work you hate to do. Here is what rumors about the much-awaited robot say about its features.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk says that Tesla’s humanoid robot will perform “anything that humans don’t want to do.” The robot prototype, named Optimus, is under development and about to be released this fall. Here is what we know about the robot so far.
Originally announced at the 2021 Tesla AI Day, the Optimus prototype, according to Musk, will release on September 30. Tesla is looking for engineers, architects, managers, and other professionals to help the company create this project. So, this appears to be a real project where the company is investing its time and money.
Tesla has a history of postponing its product release dates and oversizing its products before their release. However, Musk says that Optimus, whose first version production will start in 2023, “will be more valuable than the car.” At the 2021 Tesla AI event, he said their prototype will be ready “next year.” However, it is still unknown whether it will be a take-home robot for everyone.
Tesla Robot Price Rumors
An all-purpose robot that performs all the daily tasks its owner would not want to do would be a highly expensive one. Tesla has not revealed its price yet, but Musk suggests that its price will decrease later.
Probably, within a decade, people will be able to purchase robots at a lower price for their families as a gift. However, he also says that if the bot is soon released, it would be as expensive as a car. So, the bot will cost thousands of dollars and won’t have leasing options at this price. Pre-ordering options have not been started yet.
Significant Features of Tesla Robot
According to Elon Musk, the robot will be friendly and remove “dangerous, repetitive, and boring tasks.” For example, the bot might perform jobs like manufacturing or logistics. But Musk says it will help perform household chores like picking up groceries. It can even bring coffee from the office pantry to meetings or distribute paper sets from storage to the printers.
Moreover, it can help safeguard your fence or yard and your family members, as Musk mentions in his write-up, Believing in technology for a better future, in the Cyberspace Administration of China’s publication, “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.”
