Elon Musk says Tesla is building a humanoid robot, and will probably have a prototype next year.
The robot will stand 5 feet 8 inches high, weigh 125 pounds, be able to carry 45 pounds and move as fast as 5 miles per hour.
It will use the same computer chip, no different than Tesla’s vehicles, and navigate with eight cameras, he said.
Musk did not say if it would be sold or for how much.
He said physical work would be a choice in the future, and a universal basic income would be needed for some people to have a job.
