Musk wants to be cost-effective? Tesla's first robot "Optimus Prime" exposed: the price is very cheap

On August 24, Tesla officially announced through its official social platform that it will hold the "AI DAY" artificial intelligence conference in Palo Alto, California on September 30, North American time. It is reported that Tesla will show the humanoid robot "Optimus Prime" for the first time on this "AI DAY". (Image from: Tesla's official Weibo) Compared with the industry's popular quadruped robots, the development road of humanoid robots is much more rugged. From hardware to software, developers almost hit walls everywhere. Although Tesla's humanoid robot "Optimus Prime" was exposed much earlier, it was still one step ahead of Xiaomi's Cyber ​​One. At present, Cyber ​​One is relatively high in terms of completion, supporting 21 degrees of freedom, identifying character identities, emotions, and 85 kinds of ambient sounds. From the perspective of a "bionic person", people's basic fantasy has been satisfied. , but as far as the status quo is concerned, it has not yet reached the commercial standard. Not only is the business use a little confusing, even Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun himself admitted that the Cyber ​​One, which costs as high as 600,000, cannot enter thousands of households. However, Musk seems to want to help Lei Jun realize this wish. (Photo from: Weibo "Lu Weibing") When Musk mentioned "Optimus Prime", the most surprising thing was not hardware-related or technical innovations, but Tesla's plan to price it at 2.5 $10,000, which is somewhat contrary to Tesla's consistent style. After all, it is a company that even costs 350 yuan for a "whistle". But at the same time, it can also be seen that Musk's ambition is not to use "Optimus Prime" as a product to show muscles, but a real product for sale. Of course, on this "AI DAY", Tesla will probably only do some simple demonstrations. As for the real time to market, according to the official earlier statement, it will be 2025. I don't know which year the delivery time will be. ?

Tesla wants to be a humanoid robot, which is something worth looking forward to, but is "Optimus Prime" worth looking forward to? Maybe not. But in the foreseeable future, what Tesla will do is to open up the entire supply chain and open up the production links of robots, so that "friends" will take less detours in this field. Isn't this a good thing? ? (Cover image from: pexels)
