This robot, "Optimus", walked on a podium, under techno music, and greeted the public present.
The manufacturer of electric sedans Tesla presented Friday, in Palo Alto (California), during an event dedicated to artificial intelligence, a humanoid robot.
According to Tesla's boss, Elon Musk, the humanoid robot Optimus could be marketed for about 20,000 dollars. The billionaire said he is convinced that robots will contribute to "a future of abundance, a future without poverty".
On Twitter, the whimsical CEO also added that there will "naturally be a catgirl version of our Optimus robot ».
