On Tesla’s first-quarter earnings call, Elon Musk said the company’s Optimus robot is going to be the company’s most valuable business. This is what he meant.

The CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, said that the Optimus project would be very important to the company. He said that the humanoid robot’s value would become clear in the next few years. He also said that the first models of the bipedal robot will arrive in 2023, but he didn’t say when.

It’s also said that experts aren’t sure how long it will take to build a machine like this. Also, it was said that Elon Musk is known for making unrealistic predictions, so there is some doubt about the given date.

When Musk said in 2016 that Tesla would be able to make self-driving electric cars by 2017, it didn’t happen as planned and has been behind schedule for a long time. It’s been a while since Tesla has been working on its self-driving car. In 2020, CEO Elon Musk said they would have it ready by 2023.

In the billionaire’s words, the goal of making the Optimus robot was to cut down on the amount of money it costs to hire people. He told people at Tesla’s AI Day last summer that the machine is meant to do the same things over and over again.

“Of course, it’s supposed to be friendly, and it’s supposed to be able to navigate through a world full of people, and it’s supposed to get rid of dangerous, repetitive, and boring tasks,” said the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX at the time.

If it could, like, please go to the store and get these things for me, that’d be great.

In addition, he said that he thought about a future where the robot could do a lot of things for its owners. He also said that these robots would not hurt people. As a safety measure, the Optimus is being built so humans can overpower or run away from it if something goes wrong, Musk said.

People are going to make sure that Optimus is safe as he grows, he said. “No Terminator stuff or that kind of thing.”

Yahoo Finance said that Tesla first showed off the Optimus robot (also known as the Tesla Bot) in August 2021. 5 feet 8 inches tall and 125 pounds. It is made to do the same things over and over again, which can help with the labor market.
