One of Elon Musk's greatest talents is his ability to exploit trends and generate expectation with his advertisements. Something that today has returned during the presentation of Tesla taking advantage of the wave of admiration and praise that for the whole week has received Boston Dynamics due to the impressive motor improvements of its robots, which are capable of jumping from obstacle in obstacle and making pirouettes imitating Athletes practicing Parkour.
An admiration for robots manufactured in Massachusetts that Musk has managed to take advantage of his benefit during the end of his event Ai Day, using his charism, of computer generated images and a mannequin to announce his intention to create a humanoid robot under the Tesla brand umbrella, your high-end electric car company.
The announcement of Elon Musk has turned out to be a great success by capturing the attention of the media from all over the world and generating tens of thousands of comments on social networks of its extensive fan community.
However, unlike the different models produced by Boston Dynamics - who have been developing for more than 8 years, they have been operated in a multitude of occasions, they are marketed and, even, the French army employs them in their military maneuvers to Prepare its officers for the "Future War" - Elon Musk robot for now is nothing more than a paragraph on its website and a declaration of intent on how South African millionaire has conceived this humanoid biped. But, in the case of Elon Musk, that is already served to lift passions and awaken the public's interest.
In fact, the robot does not have a definitive name and, provisionally, has been baptized as Tesla Bot, a word composed by the name of its brand of cars and by the word 'bot', the abbreviation of robot in English.
Musk has insured during his intervention he hopes to have a prototype of his invention for next year and has given some details about how he intends to develop this device. He assures that the future Tesla Bot "will be real" and "friendly", which will serve "for general use" and that it will be focused on "unsafe, repetitive or boring" tasks, which currently perform human beings.
He has also assured that the robot is thought so that "you can run away from him and possibly beat him." Although he has added sarcastically that he "expects that does not happen but never know".
For this, MUSK ensures that its movement will be based on the use of 40 electromechanical actuators distributed in your body, which will have head, legs, arms and hands of five fingers.
For its development, South African businessman hopes to take advantage of technologies that are already used in their vehicles as automatic pilot cameras that would be installed on their head and a central computer housing on their torso with the navigation software of their cars.
A robot that, according to the second richest man in the world, will contribute to "in the future, physical work is optional."
However, at the moment Musk does not have the necessary engineering team and has taken advantage of his intervention to announce that he was looking for professionals for the development of this project.
