Feb 25, 2024 09:50 PM IST

Elon Musk has sent social media into a frenzy with the video of humanoid robot Optimus on X.

Elon Musk shared the video of a humanoid robot on his X robot, sending social media into a frenzy. “Optimus strolling around the lab,” the Tesla chief executive captioned in his X post, which has now amassed a whopping 66 million views.

The one minute and 18 second-long video shows Optimus walking without any support. It even takes right and left turns while walking in the lab, sending excitement to an entirely new level.

“Can’t wait to see those in person, operating in grocery stores stocking shelves and manning the till,” another user posted. “Robot Olympics may open soon,” a user suggested in a post.

Last month, the billionaire had shared a video of the robot Optimus folding a shirt. The video had received nearly 3 lakh likes.

“Important note: Optimus cannot yet do this autonomously, but certainly will be able to do this fully autonomously and in an arbitrary environment (won’t require a fixed table with box that has only one shirt),” Musk had posted.
