The robot will come to relieve you of doing the dishes. According to Musk, the robot will take over boring tasks at your house.
In a column for China's Cyberspace magazine, Musk talked about the company's plan to launch a bot this year. According to Musk, the bot will be about the same weight and height as an adult, and will be designed to carry heavy objects, walk fast in small steps, and have an interactive interface for communication with people.
The main goal of theTeslaBot is to have the same abilities as humans, so that it can serve its owners and check things off their to-do list. Musk wrote thatTesla Bots could replace people in boring and dangerous tasks. The vision is for them to serve millions of households, such as caring for the elderly.
Within a decade, the tech billionaire wants these types of robots to be mass produced. The richest person in the world wrote that a home robot could be cheaper than a car. People will be able to buy a robot for their parents in less than a decade. Musk is known for setting unrealistic timelines that are later delayed.
Musk had said earlier this year that the robot would be the top priority for the company. There was a person dressed up as the robot to do a dance at the first reveal of the humanoid robot. The bot runs on the same artificial intelligence as the company's vehicles and is also equipped with autopilot cameras.
Musk told the crowd that the robot was meant to be friendly. Musk has warned of the dangers of artificial intelligence in the past. He thinks that theTeslaBot will be a good kind of artificial intelligence, not the kind that will turn on its human overlords and cook their dinner.
