Description
At Tesla's AI Day this year, Elon Musk and his team revealed their newest prototypes of the Optimus humanoid robot. The robot was able to slowly walk (untethered for the first time) across the stage and wave its arms at the audience. Their latest generation prototype wasn't able to walk yet though. Musk aims to quickly produce a high volume of these robots ("ultimately millions of units") which will "cost less than a car" (under $20,000). The team then discussed the design, training, and production outcomes.
