Elon Musk was already addicted to Twitter before buying it, and his ‘addiction’ hasn’t waned yet.

The CEO of Tesla, SpaceX and the Boring Company is constantly posting on the platform that’s now known as X and he’s recently used it often to showcase what Tesla’s Optimus robot can do.

Just a few weeks ago, Musk shared an interesting, albeit slightly eerie, video of Tesla Optimus meticulously folding clothes.

This time, in the latest video Musk shared, we can see Optimus going for a walk.

For some reason, watching Optimus walk is somewhat comical.

Mostly because Optimus doesn’t walk ‘normally’, like a human being would.

Its pace is slow and it looks a bit unnatural and mechanical.

It is, well, robotic.

It almost looks like an old man.

Optimus is still not commercially available, but it might be soon enough.

It is roughly the same size of an average human, about 5’8” tall, but stronger.

It can lift weights without breaking its metal back and it can perform boring and repetitive tasks that humans can’t, or won’t, do.
