Elon Musk has confirmed that Tesla is working on developing a prototype of a 'Humanoid Robot', designed to carry out 'boring, repetitious and dangerous' work. Musk confirmed the development at the Tesla AI day held last week, while also stating that the prototype will be unveiled in 2022.

Talking about the humanoid robot, Elon Musk stated that it would be 5ft 8inches tall, weigh 56 kg and be capable of accomplishing a number of tasks. This includes attaching bolts to a car and even picking up groceries from a local shop.

The Tesla bot will come with a face-mounted screen to display relevant information. The bot will be engineered to be 'friendly'. It will have a top speed of 8 km/h, which will allow an average human being to easily outrun it. The Tesla bot has been codenamed 'Optimus'.
