Elon Musk's Robot Project Evoking Opinions; Prototype May Be Ready By Fall

The Tesla CEO hopes for a September 30 sneak peak.

People are reacting on the Internet to Elon Musk's plans to have a humanoid robot ready by 2023 (or even as early as a September 30, 2022 Artificial Intelligence conference). The robot is know as "Tesla Optimus," and is reportedly designed to free up time for humans by taking care of mundane tasks such grocery shopping.

"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.
