Additionally, Optimus Gen-2 showcases its dexterity by delicately moving eggs from a carton to an egg boiler. Tesla attributes this feat to the humanoid’s new hands, equipped with “tactile sensing on all fingers.” 

Elon Musk’s Statement In 2022

At Tesla shareholders meeting in 2022, Musk expressed a bold vision for Optimus Gen-2, stating, “It will, I think, turn the whole notion of an economy on its head, at the point at which you have no shortage of labor. It is a fundamental transformation of civilization as we know it.”

Origins Of The Name Optimus

Originally announced as the Tesla bot in 2021, the humanoid robot was later christened Optimus, drawing inspiration from the powerful and benevolent leader of the Autobots in the Transformers media franchise.
