Every day we come closer to the possibility.

I’m pretty late in writing this post but better late than never I’d say!

Looking at it on a first impression, it seems pretty obvious to anyone that Boston Dynamic’s Atlas robot simply takes the cake here1. But we should definitely take a step back and look at the entire picture of what we’re dealing with.

The Atlas Robot:

The Tesla Optimus:

Honestly, considering just these basic facts alone, Optimus seems to be on the trajectory for becoming a mass-produced model sooner or later. Atlas can probably be thought of a premium model (that is, if it ever becomes commercially available to the masses rather than to a select few industries & groups). Knowing all of this makes it just a bit harder to be able to compare these two different products, only time will tell how this all ends.

On another note, is it just me or would anyone else like to see Optimus & Atlas participate in battle bots?
