Bonus points for ticking off Bezos: deliver Amazon packages with Tesla AI. After they are transported to the warehouse on a Tesla Semi.Thinking out loud…
Grimes and Karpathy are posting robo dog pics, day before AI day.
Dave Lee has been talking about Tesla needing a “last 100m” delivery solution.
A rumoured AI day surprise. (Tweeted by the first guy to tweet pic of the invite).
A fleet of noiseless robotaxis planned that has a ready market of people to move for most of the day, but which has nothing to do during the small hours.
An online shopping sector going gangbusters and which will ramp again if deliveries become cheaper and more reliable. (There’s no such thing as free delivery, the cost is merely averaged and moved into the markup).
A quadruped makes sense, unlikely to stumble on ramps, gutters, stairs, and able to jump in the back of an EV. Also cute enough to be non threatening. (noted how Grimes played on the cute factor)
I think Dave is right. We just need a little imagination to see how robodog will pull the parcel from the vehicle and secure it on his back.
Looking forward to the presentation tomorrow.
I've been following her for several years, love her cute youtube physics videos she does, but she just cut ties with her PBS sponsor last year. Then she starts making these with Toyota....gotta get the money from somewhere.....really disappointed with her.This popped up on my YouTube feed:
I enjoyed many of her other videos, but in this video, she seems to affirm that hydrogen fuel cells could be a viable alternate clean transportation solution. She mentions at the beginning that the series was sponsored by Toyota. It seems as if she were really interested in the merits of “hydrogen vs battery electric cars” from a physics point of view, she would have critically examined Elon’s analysis of the two and maybe without Toyota’s sponsorship. She is widely viewed with 2.0 million subscribers.
I’m not calling on anyone to comment on her YouTube video page, but if you do, please keep it polite and civil.
