User @airpod407 has a prediction: "Battery life one hour at best," he proclaims.

Yeah, I think 2033 or even 2043 is more realistic for human-like robots walking around," suggests @jmaddalena. "2023 is literally months from now."

"I want one," announces @antisocialmeeee. "Who’s got 20k hanging around that they can lend me?"

"Anyone ever notice Elon's projects have military applications?" asks @dexmould.

"All good until someone hacks it and removes strength and speed restrictions," guesses @the..mohan.
