According to Musk, the robot may be available in the market next year.
He explained that the new robot “will basically start dealing with boring, repetitive and dangerous work,” according to the newspaper.
While Musk did not disclose the expected selling price of the robot, he stressed that it would have a “profound” impact on the economy by reducing labor costs.
“In the future, physical work will be an option,” he added.
The newspaper quoted Musk that the robot “Optimus” will use the same chips and sensors used in the automated driving system in “Tesla” cars.
She added that the robot will have the ability to carry a weight of at least 20 kilograms, and lift 68 kilograms.
Musk also pointed out that “Optimus” has the ability to run at a speed of 8 kilometers per hour.
Musk confirmed, according to the newspaper, that the robot will be designed in a way that allows humans to easily escape from it, and even overcome it.
Musk indicated that the robot will fulfill some of the tasks that its owner will ask of it, such as attaching the latch to the car, or going to the market for shopping, by ordering him, “Go to the store, please, and bring me the next groceries.”
And Musk has been known to provide innovations and ideas that some see as fantastic, but he proves every time that science can do a lot of amazing things.
In July 2020, Musk revealed a technology that his company, Nera Link, is working on, which is a chip implanted in the brain, which will be able to help treat several conditions, including addiction and depression.
And in August 2020, Musk unveiled a pig that had a chip implanted in its brain, indicating an early step toward achieving the goal of treating human diseases with the same type of implant.
Nera Link, co-founded by Musk in 2016, aims to implant wireless connections between the brain and a computer, including thousands of electrodes in the most complex human organ, to help treat neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and spinal cord injuries.
The diameter of the slice is about 8 millimeters, and it is implanted after drilling a precise hole in the skull.
