Elon Musk announces humanoid Tesla Bot

The robot with a human-like appearance would carry out the physical work that people like to do the least, with "profound implications for the economy," Musk said at the company's AI Day event on Thursday evening.

"So we think we'll probably have a prototype sometime next year that looks like this. And it's intended to be friendly, of course, and navigate through the world both for humans and eliminate dangerous, repetitive and boring tasks,"Musk said.
