Elon Musk is known for pushing the boundaries of what we think is possible, whether in the aerospace or automotive industries. He has just unveiled his latest project, the Tesla Bot, a humanoid robot that can help people with everyday tasks and combat the labour shortage. However, it wouldn’t be a Tesla announcement without some incredible memes. We show you the best Tesla Bot memes on the internet.

What is the Tesla Bot?

Elon Musk has just announced the Tesla Bot, a humanoid robot that is designed to do “boring, repetitious and dangerous” work.

The bot stands at 5ft 8in, weighs 125lb and has the ability to carry out tasks such as picking up your shopping or working on your car.

According to Musk, a prototype of his humanoid robot is going to be available next year.

However, Raj Rajkumar, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, told Reuters:

“I can safely say it will be much longer than ten years before a humanoid bot from any company on the planet can go to the store and get groceries for you.”
