Tesla Optimus Humanoid Robot
On September 30th, 2022 in Palo Alto, California, Tesla hosted AI Day 2 - A recruitment event showcasing their cutting-edge AI technology. The highlight of the event was the much-anticipated unveiling of the prototype Optimus humanoid robot.
The first demonstration was a robot they called 'Bumble C' (Another reference to the Transformers franchise). Bumble C walked across the stage, waved to the crowd and danced.
