On September 30, Tesla plans to reveal a prototype of Optimus, its humanoid robot. It was introduced first in August 2021 during Tesla’s A.I. Day.
The company goes beyond logistics as Musk sees robots used in homes as friends or catgirls.
Musk had said that Tesla is already the world’s biggest robotics company because its cars are like semi-sentient robots on wheels.
He also told investors that the robots would be deployed in Telas plants to move parts around the factory, saying that the Opotimus robots can be more important than the vehicle over time and provide much-needed labour.
SpaceX wants to bring satellite internet to Iran: Musk
Recall that Legit.ng reported that SpaceX will apply for an exemption from US sanctions against Iran in a bid to offer its satellite internet service to the country, owner Elon Musk said on Monday. “Starlink will apply for an exemption from sanctions against Iran,” Musk said in response to a tweet from a science reporter.
Musk had initially announced that the Starlink satellite internet service had been made available on every continent — “including Antarctica” — with the company planning to launch up to 42,000 satellites to boost connectivity.
Launched at the end of 2020, Starlink offers high-speed broadband service to customers in areas poorly served by fixed and mobile terrestrial networks through a constellation of satellites in low earth orbit.
