It was at last year’s AI Day that Musk introduced the humanoid robot project saying that it could be launched the following year.
The robot would carry out the work people don’t like to do.
Musk said at the time the robot would “eliminate dangerous, repetitive, boring tasks.”
“Optimus could eventually address global shortages of labor, and in the short term might be able to carry items around a factory,” Musk had said in January, according to Reuters.
