Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, is developing a humanoid robot; find out what makes it unique
You often watch robot sci-fi movies and wonder, "How fantastic would it be to have one who would perform all of your tasks with just one command?" Soon your wish will come true as Tesla is currently working on a humanoid robot that will help people in performing daily tasks. Musk shared this news during a speech at Tesla's AI Day event.
The robot will be able to perform the tasks which people do not like to perform. We've often seen such robots in fictional comic and film characters. Although, Musk has not yet confirmed whether this robot would be available for purchase or not.
If you're wondering if the robot will have a human-like face like Sofia or an Indian robot Rashmi, rest assured that it will not. Instead, the robot will have a screen that will display vital information. Musk has said that this robot will greatly impact the global economy.
The first model of this robot will be released by next year. People around the world consider Musk as a real-life Tony Stark, a famous character from Marvel comics and movies as he always comes out with new ideas. Along with the humanoid robot Musk and his team is also working on other projects including Starlink satellite and manufacturing electric vehicles.
Is this robot capable of performing all human-like tasks?
Obviously, Artificial intelligence has grown rapidly but still, it is not as capable to build a robot that can perform all tasks like humans. Presently, the company is developing a robot that can simply perform cleaning or transporting tasks.
According to Musk, the robot will be 5 feet 8 inches tall, weigh up to 56 kilograms, carry up to 20 kilograms, as well as run at a pace of 5 miles per hour.
