In a recent announcement, Tesla's CEO Elon Musk has stated that it will be building a humanoid robot called Tesla Bot. Musk said that the company is good at sensors and batteries, and they will soon have a prototype by the end of next year that looks precisely like a humanoid robot. This announcement was made on AI Day, in which a series of tech talks were hosted by Tesla in California.

Also, Tesla is working on other exciting new products scheduled for years into the future to energize backers, including employees, customers, and investors. Musk said that the humanoid robot is the future as it can work and perform repetitive tasks that only humans can do today. It will undoubtedly have a great chance to transform the world economy by driving labor costs down.

Musk also added that the robot, code-named "Optimus," will be working on the same chips and sensors that Tesla's cars use prior for self-driving features. The robot will be around five foot eight inches tall, with a digital screen where the head is for helpful information. Tesla is designing these humanoid robots so that humans can do day-to-day tasks with ease.
