Tesla has shared a new clip of the Optimus robot, showing off how smoothly the humanoid bot can walk around.

The 80-second video, which has already been viewed more than two million times in less than 24 hours, was captioned: “Getting my daily steps in.”

Elon Musk also shared the footage with his 173 million X followers. “Optimus strolling around the lab,” he wrote.

Tesla’s Optimus robot going faster and smoother

Social media users spotted a marked improvement in the speed of Optimus compared to May 2023.

Last month, the billionaire shared a video of the robot, Optimus, folding a shirt.

The robot has come a long way since the prototype was revealed at Tesla’s AI Day in 2022. Optimus at the time appeared on stage at a Silicon Valley event, where it waved to the audience and raised its knees. Musk said the robot was a work in progress.

Optimus robots share some of their sensor components and AI software with those found in Tesla cars.

Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk has previously said that the majority of Tesla’s long-term value will come from the robot and expects to sell significantly more robots than it does cars.

Indeed, Musk has even claimed that demand for the robot could be as high as 10 to 20 billion units, more than the number of people on the planet.

Speaking at Tesla’s AI day in 2022, Musk said that the robot has the potential to be transformative for civilization. He claimed it could lead to “a future of abundance, a future where there is no poverty, where you could have whatever you want in terms of products and services.”

As of 2022, Musk said he hoped to bring the robot to market in three to five years and that, once ready, it will be “an extremely capable” machine.

Musk: 1 billion humanoid robots on Earth in two decades

Last month Elon Musk took to social media to express his agreement with a fellow tech leader’s prediction that there will be about one billion humanoid robots on Earth in two decades.

Musk took to X, formerly Twitter, to concur with the prediction made by David Holz, the founder of artificial intelligence (AI) research lab Midjourney. Holz said in a post last week that “we should be expecting a billion humanoid robots on earth in the 2040s and a hundred billion (mostly alien) robots throughout the solar system in the 2060s.”

Musk replied, “Probably something like that, provided the foundations of civilization are stable.”
