Oh, I need a mental stretch after hearing this news. What’s happening here?
Today, Elon Musk shared a video featuring Tesla’s humanoid robot, Optimus, demonstrating its yoga skills. India, and the world at large, take heed—there’s something new on the horizon attempting to embrace your culture. And guess what? The robot has become remarkably flexible—truly flexible.
While enjoying the hit song “Chaleya (From Jawan),” a blockbuster track from Shahrukh Khan’s latest film, I couldn’t help but picture Optimus dancing to the beat.
The Tesla yoga robot is equipped with a 2.3 kilowatt-hour battery pack, ideal for a full day’s worth of work. It operates on a Tesla chip and features Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity, as reported by The Verge.
Acquiring Tesla’s “Autopilot” advanced driver assistance system, which employs the same sensors and AI software as Tesla’s vehicles, may come with a price tag of approximately $20,000.
As highlighted in the video shared by Musk, the system has the capability to precisely determine the position of its limbs in space using only vision and joint position encoders.
Optimus is set to acquire a new and versatile capability: handling objects of various shapes and sizes in industrial and other settings. When you observe the precision of its hand movements, it’s clear that it’s far from resembling Yoga; rather, it presents two rigid hands attempting to introduce another human-like entity to the “look at me” roster.
Elon Musk shared his vision for Optimus, stating, “It’ll bring about a fundamental transformation in the way our civilization operates,” during the AI Day event held on September 30, 2022.
‘I Bow to You’, ‘I bow to the divine in you’…
Elon Musk plays it really well with Optimus, trying to influence the psychological nature of human beings. This is evident with the way the robot shows respect and connects with us spiritually. On another note, targeting the Indian audience after its non-stop fast-growing economy and after the G-20 summit.
Tesla’s Optimus is now capable of self-rectifying its arms and legs. Then, what’s next? I am going to leave it to your imagination!
