Elon Musk’s promised Optimus was a lackluster showing last week. We announced it for two weeks, and I wish to apologize for the waste of time on both parts. It’s expected to run about $20,000, but since the Tesla 3 was supposed to be $30k, and is now $50k… I’m not sure we should talk that. There’s a lot of assurances of safeguards from wrongdoing, true conversational aspects, and a good strength… lifting a half-ton concert grand piano… but it’s also 3-5 years away… which in the grand scheme of things… may be much longer. The robot revolution is farther away than we feared.
