I’d cosplay as one, would need to lose a few pounds lol primarily in the belly region, but I’m taller than it so I won’t be one-to-one 😝

I see this as a plus to the world, not saying it cos I’m an investor lol but I just think it’s about time this gets pushed into the mainstream/zeitgeist/world. We see Japan using them with the elderly/pleasure, in the states for heavy work/military/rescue/aid and for disabled people to enjoy the world. I wanna see it go further and setup integration with those who’ve lost limbs, maybe one day replace body’s with them. There’s so many directions this could go.

badmonk if you got one, what would you name yours?

Its barely a concept.


Boston Dynamics has working robots with some AI and Elon brings out someone dancing in a costume and we're supposed to be impressed? Elon is just a clown show now.

The concept of robots helping people is good and has been explored in Japan for awhile now because of their aging population. But Elon sucks and probably this won't actually happen from Tesla, it feels like he's just trying to push Tesla's stock up.

We're long overdue for this step in tech and society.

I wish this was coming into place right now not over the next few years. Imagine the impact on this stupid Virus not requiring humans to show up to these awful jobs everyone hates anyway working closely together.

Also, at a certain point I think we have bad service jobs that exist to serve humans who work other bad service jobs and all the ridiculous commuter traffic to get people to customer service jobs and cubicles. I mean take the office workers who grab quick meals from fast food or travel stops and also the fast food workers that probably wind up eating fast food themselves. Or the Truck Drivers that burn fossil fuel to deliver fuel and s***ty snacks to Gas Stations and Truck Stops. How much fossil fuel is burned by refineries as they produce Gas and Diesel?

What if these robots start first flipping burgers, the burden on our resources and waste of human labor potential goes down like a domino effect, and we realize the actual demand for a lot of wasteful nonsense work goes down?

Yea and when you combine things like 3D printing then the need to go to the store to buy a hammer or the truck to deliver the hammer or the store that sells the hammer becomes needles and we save resources.

But

The world is still ruled by the rich and most of them want to control us so we'll get shafted with this progress or the progress will be held back so they can chain us to pointless jobs. The Tesla robot will be expensive and will mainly be bought by companies to reduce the need of workers.


Also here are acutal dancing robots.
