    • elonmuskBringing up Tesla Production Line 2. 542 robots in total with 15 operating simultaneously at the central assembly point. And people wonder why I'm worried about the robocalypse …

    The dude and his friends think 'manufacturing' in four dimensions, not the usual two.

    Wow, I really want to see a video of 15 robots working simultaneously at the central assembly point.

    Well, they're nice now...what happens after the singularity and they unionize and go on strike for better working conditions? Then there'll be 3 robots working simultaneously and 12 "supervising".

    The robots look great. I just hope they have the needed supply chain set up for a good ramp.

    Agreed. Doesn't seem to fit.

    Professional hi-fidelity image recognition proof below. Also, is half of the car not assembled yet or is that the normal length to height ratio for the X?
