Elon Musk has revealed the design for the new Tesla Robot, and plans for it to be released in 2022. the Robot is designed to do basic human tasks.
“I think the idea is pretty cool but I don’t know how long it will be until it actually releases,” said Logan Crist, a senior.
It contains a new chip called the D1. It is designed to do basic tasks such as make grocery runs, which will utilize the autopilot technologies. The robot was originally presented on August 19, 2021 and a prototype is likely to be released in 2022.
“Elon is a smart guy, I think the idea that you can link it to a Tesla car is really cool,” Said Kal Goff, a senior.
The robot is planned to be 5’8 and 125 pounds supposed to be made out of lightweight materials. The robot will have human-like hands and 40 electromechanical actuators to supply full movement capabilities for the robot.
“I don’t think it will be released in 2022, I think it will take longer,” said Goff.
Next year the prototype will likely be ready, but who knows how far along it will be until a robot is delivering groceries or picking up prescriptions for people. According to Elon the robot is designed to be inherently good and help usher in the future of technology.
“I probably would never get one just because I bet it would be really expensive, Said Crist.
Even Musk claims that people should be afraid of AI. His vision is to create a version of these robots that can only do good and help people eliminate those boring mundane tasks out of their life.
“I think it’s a cool idea, I just doubt it will ever be practical or available for use by the general public,” Said Ryan Bartholomew, an NAU student.
There are tons of designed uses for the robot, it is only a matter of time until it releases and the future of robots is here.
