Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, unveiled the robot Optimus.


The newest humanoid robot prototype being created by tech tycoon Elon Musk's Tesla electric car firm has been unveiled.

At a Silicon Valley event, Optimus made an appearance on stage and raised its knees while waving to the crowd.

The CEO stated that although the robot was still under development, it might be available for purchase in a few years.

According to company experts, mass-market robots from Tesla will be evaluated by performing tasks in the auto factories.

During the annual Tesla AI Day presentation, the prototype was brought onto the stage.

A video showing Optimus doing straightforward duties, like watering plants, carrying boxes, and lifting metal bars, was displayed to the audience.

According to Mr. Musk, the robots would be mass produced in three to five years for less than $20,000 (£17,900).

The head of Tesla predicted "a future of abundance."

He went on to say, "It really is a fundamental shift of civilization as we know it.
