What Will It Do? Musk designed the robot to handle “dangerous, repetitive, and boring tasks.” It’s more of a servant than a superhero, meant to do your shopping, clean your house and even tackle physical chores you might not want to do. It’s meant to perform these tasks and navigate the world with a friendly demeanor.
Elon Musk announced a humanoid robot designed to help with those repetitive, boring tasks people hate doing. Musk suggested it could run to the grocery store for you, but presumably it would handle any number of tasks involving manual labor. Musk’s robot is being developed by Tesla.
SoftBank Robotics offered its home companion Pepper humanoid robot for around $1,800 before halting production earlier this year. But with Tesla’s advanced technology, many are predicting that their robot could cost $10,000 (or far more).
