At the recent Tesla shareholder meeting, Elon Musk disclosed some details about Tesla’s humanoid robot. He said that the Optimus robot will be more valuable than cars and will completely change the economy.

Elon Musk Announces Tesla Bot A humanoid Robot For General Purpose Use

“I suspect Optimus is going to be more valuable than the car long-term. It will turn the whole notion of the economy on its head.”

According to earlier reports, the Optimus Prime is a humanoid robot announced by Tesla at last year’s AI Day. If nothing accidental happens, the prototype of the robot will be officially released on Tesla’s AI Day this year.

Elon Musk had before now even said you could download your brain capacities into humanoid robots.

“We could download the things that we believe make ourselves so unique,” he said. “Now, of course, if you’re not in that body anymore, that is definitely going to be a difference, but as far as preserving our memories, our personality, I think we could do that.”

Optimus Robot: What We Know

Tesla’s humanoid machine will be 175 cm tall and weigh 112 kg. It can move at a speed of 8 km/h and can carry 20 kg of objects.


Its “eyes” will use the same camera as that on the Tesla cars’ AutoPilot. However, as the computing power is as high as 9PFLOPS (peta billion times), it will have the ability to operate autonomously and execute line-by-line commands non-linearly.

For comparison, the RTX 3090 Ti, the strongest game graphics card, has a floating-point computing power of only 40T. Thus, it’s only 1/225 of the Tesla robot. Will “Westworld” come true?

Musk once said that the robot “can do things that humans don’t want to do.” He also predicted that this robot may change the world and become more famous than Tesla.
