As if Tesla didn’t have enough open manufacturing sites (and with factory work going on in China, Germany, and the United States, sometimes even literally), CEO Elon Musk also announced a completely new build last August.

The Tesla robot announcement in August 2021 came as a surprise, and many observers found it hard to get used to. However, Musk said this January without fear that the humanoid helper, now known as Optimus, has a top priority in product development in 2022 and Electric cars may be more important to Tesla, In April, he reiterated this and specified that the robot could be worth even more than the FSD autopilot software for autonomous driving of the future, which in turn is said to be worth far more than the electric car business.
So, according to Musk, there’s a lot of business to get into here — and for humanity, with the hordes of robots, a “very age” in which the laws of economics are no longer valid, as they say.

Musk announces ‘epic’ second AI Day
The second AI day will certainly be “epic,” the Tesla CEO said in another Twitter message. When asked if the prototype would look like the functional dolls shown so far, he replied no. At least a new outer shell for the robot should be available by the end of September, and perhaps some functions and more concrete information. In doing so, Musk hopes to be able to make more use of artificial intelligence for the autopilot system, which, according to his description, has to make sense of the real world almost anyway. Of However, the road to autonomous driving has taken too long at TeslaAs promised by them, so that the robot can disappoint even the hopes of quick success with it.
