Human shape and size, and (roughly) human movements? With some more engineering, this would hold Kwame's interest. Real Doll and other sex doll makers are going to be beating the doors down for that tech.

Don't worry, Musk said he commented out the 'terminator code' that was written in.

cool another tesla branded status symbol I'll judge the owners of even harder for.

dready zim: Don't worry, Musk said he commented out the 'terminator code' that was written in.


I thought the Musk brand was to shut off moments before something happens. So I'm sure when the T1000s pull the trigger they will momentarily shut-off, and blame the pedestrian for being in the way of that rail-gun.

So.....if tesla software programmers cant get a car to see a semi trailer and avoid it, how exactly will these function anywhere inside? They will just keep walking into the wall until the batteries die

That walk and those clips were all very carefully staged. The bot is a long way behind Elon's sales patter

The legs looked fairly polished, but the arms look like they're fairly early in the development process.

I'm not sure why this was worthy of an 'event', given there are already other robots out there that make this one look like a kid's poorly built toy.

On the other hand, how awesome is it that a robot this advanced is now primitive compared to what's available?

The could get heating from the battery and use it for pleasure if the battery encased the vaginal passage.

//meltdowns during use would be epic news
//how long till they ARE sex bots??

He's a huckster and major BS artist.  Everything is always "two years away".   I don't understand why no one had called him out on his blatant lies.

Has he figured out a way to impregnate it, yet?

I'll risk an eventual uprising if that thing can do the dishes and the laundry.

Que the rush of states ready to legalize these things hunting down Musk's critics on Twitter in return for him locating a factory there.

That's not trolling him - that's actually a real world example of a journalist doing their farking job. That's exactly the kind of plain honest thing that should be being said on the reg, but rarely is in favor of sucking up to an oligarch instead or delivering the advertisement for them in the form of an "article".

That's cool, but to be fair, a quick DuckDuckGo says those things cost $74,500. Article says Musk is shooting for under 20k.

You guys can rag on Tesla cars all you want, but he did bring an affordable ev to market. And if it wasn't for him, the other automakers sure the hell weren't going to do it. It was only when they were forced to by a 15-year-old company valued at more than their companies did they start making any serious effort to bring products to market.

Seriously, Tesla had the 3rd and 4th best selling car in America, and they can't even sell them in Texas. So yeah, they must be shiat.

/And I don't actually care for Musk that much one way or the other.

Low quality products only sell well when they're cheap. Tesla cars are not.

I get that hating on anything connected to Elon Musk is fashionable right now, but the QUALITY of those cars isn't one of their problems.

My understanding is the problem isn't the absolute quality, it's the quality relative to the price tag.
