Elon Musk has revealed with great pomp something other automakers have been working on for decades

Of course, it is not written anywhere that the American automaker will not advance the same, given what it has achieved in terms of quality so far or how autopilot and FSD work, but we will not give its robotic bot a great chance of success.
Tesla held a presentation this week, showing off its latest developments. However, if you expect, for example, the announcement of a specific date, when Cybetruck will finally start production, which has allegedly been pre-ordered by hundreds of thousands of people, then you are next to the spruce. Instead, Elon Musk first announced the need to redouble his efforts in the field of artificial intelligence. As a result, Tesla is expected to discover a humanoid robot next year. However, the question is whether we’ll really see it, because the California brand’s head was pretty vague at the time of arrival. And we all somehow know how his promises go.
However, the question is not only about whether or not Tesla “sometime within the next year” will actually come up with a robot, but also about the essence of this novelty. Musk revealed in great pomp his intent to build something that other manufacturers had been working on for several decades. Of particular note is the Honda-powered Asimo, which is considered one of the best humanoid robots today. In addition, Toyota and General Motors also have an iron on fire. So Tesla will be far from the first, although of course this does not mean that it cannot be innovative.
In this regard, there are some doubts again, but just look at how Tesla hasn’t been able to handle decent production quality for at least a decade. In addition, the California automaker wants to equip the planned machine with the same technologies as autopilot and fully autonomous systems. At the same time, they do not even get their name, after which the question almost arises whether the black script from the movie Terminator will not come true, when the AI turns on people. Especially if Musk admits something like this, when he says that in case of danger, you will “run away” to the robot – its movement speed will be limited to 8 km / h.
So Tesla’s novelty won’t be a rival to Usain Bolt, unless robots learn to improve themselves – a utopia for the time being. Then endurance is determined by the batteries, which must also supply the artificial muscles. The robot should lift 68 kg in deadlift and its transport capacity is 20 kg. In his case, you don’t really have to worry about Skynet’s dominance, on the other hand, the real use of these parameters is dropping – for example, you probably wouldn’t use them in building such a bot.
It almost seems that Tesla got a bit run down during development and started boiling out of water. In addition, she does this in a rather smiling way, because, for example, the already mentioned car can boast of a real product that works perfectly, Tesla posted a man in a spandex jacket, and he performed a robotic dance on stage. You can also see this in the video below, the ‘automated’ part starting around 2:05:30.
We’re looking forward to a Tesla robot over the next year. Given that he will use the same technologies as the autopilot, the question is whether, despite the assurances of Elon Musik, he is not concerned about his safety. Photo: Tesla
