Just when you thought Elon Musk’s empty promises couldn’t get any more absurd, along comes AI Day 2021, where Musk once again, reveals to the world Tesla’s (NASDAQ: TSLA) next disruptive technology— tech that doesn’t technically exist yet.
Elon Musk took Thursday’s AI Day event as an ideal opportunity to showcase Tesla’s next big adventure, which is a humanoid robot that has yet to be built. “It’s basically going to start dealing with work that is boring, repetitive and dangerous,” Musk said, referring to the robot that doesn’t even have a prototype. According to the Tesla CEO, the non-existent product could have a significant and disruptive impact on the imminent economy, adding that physical labour would become optional, and universal basic income would be a necessity in the future.
To illustrate the potential capabilities of the new humanoid robot— rather than presenting some type of prototype during the presentation— Musk instead introduced the audience to a person dancing in a bodysuit simulating the futuristic robot design. And no, none of this is made up:
Musk went on to elaborate that the robot will be able to carry out every day tasks, such as fetching groceries from the store, or attaching a bolt to a car using a wrench. The non-existent robot will come affixed with a screen for a face, which will allegedly display “useful information”— whatever that may be. It remains unknown whether the prototype that doesn’t exist yet will be powered by Solar Roof panels or Neuralink.
