According to Electrek’s latest report, Tesla has released a prototype preview of the Optimus humanoid robot. The popular automaker is preparing to reveal more information about this technology on Sept. 30.

In line with the AI Day #2 event, the company CEO Elon Musk has dropped an image featuring the robotic hands of the upcoming prototype. Although it looks promising, many people quickly criticized this creation.

Some robot experts said that Tesla bots are “unfeasible” to make so they are unlikely to be created.

Is it Feasible to Create Tesla Bots?

Is Tesla Bot really feasible to create? Here’s an explainer about it.

The modern world has been thriving with artificial intelligence and advanced machinery. Robots are made to make our lives easier, but somehow, it does not apply at all times.

Previously, Tesla unveiled the humanoid bot concepts, which look futuristic to the untrained eyes. At the time, the car manufacturer said it wanted to improve its electric cars thanks to AI.

As per Screen Rant, the company mentioned the potential specs of the Tesla bot. It looks like a human being with its bipedal design, but it still lacks more development features.

Some roboticists said that it could be impossible with the technology we have at the moment. However, the robotic systems can be problematic since they are hard to program. It’s indeed difficult to match its functions with real humans.

According to them, the best bots currently existing do not look like humans when it comes to their movement. Copying the body systems in a very exact way is pretty ambiguous. Yes, we are talking about muscular, skeletal, and the nervous system.

Moreover, the robot professionals are keen in their statement that Tesla could potentially hold no advantage by the time it rolls out its prototype in the next two months.

Tesla Bots Could Bring ‘Unsettling’ Implications to the Company

In the same report by the tech site, by the time Tesla shows the Tesla humanoid robot prototype, several revelations might be unveiled. As such, it could provide “unsettling” impacts regarding the practices of the carmaker.

Creating a formidable robot will not only showcase the power of machines and AI, but this very same invention could pave the way to help other people, especially persons with disabilities (PWDs).

If the company is very firm that it will create a close model to humans, they should drop more details about it soon. Nevertheless, this could only mean one thing: Tesla is intentionally slowing down its progress, although it knows that it could right away give help to PWDs.

Because creating the Tesla Bot is a difficult chore to overcome, we might not see any updates about it in the next few weeks or months to come.

The September presentation about this machine could stir some emotions in the event. Some might be amazed, while other audiences might get disappointed with its current path.
