Is he joking?
If he’s not, are you scared or excited by the prospect of a Tesla Bot?

This just seems like a incremental step to me. Boston dynamics have been making biped robots for years. And it goes without saying that car manufacturers have been doing the same but much more specific bots to build certain parts of the vehicles.
The video is somewhat vague, and he didn’t seem to mention anything different than what Boston dynamics has already been doing unless the distinction is that a Tesla bot will be affordable to consumers (which boston dynamics has just started selling their bots to companies).
I thought the same too, hence asked whether he was joking
He could be playing the same trick Steve Jobs did back when he essentially create a ‘demo’ but got Apple to believe it was an early working prototype and set to be better than macOS. Hmm maybe I dreamt it?
