Two prototype Tesla Bots could walk, wave their arms and grip with fingers.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Friday unveiled the company's Tesla Bot, a robot code-named Optimus that shuffled across a stage, waved, and pumped its arms in a low-speed dance move.

The robot could cost $20,000 within three to five years, Musk said.

"Our goal is to make a useful humanoid robot as quickly as possible," Musk said.

The robot wasn't as flashy as some others, like Boston Dynamics' parkour-capable Atlas, but it's what Tesla put together in less than eight months.

We just didn't want it to fall on its face," Musk quipped at Tesla AI Day 2022, an event designed to showcase the robot and the company's autonomous vehicle technology, called Full Self-Driving, or FSD.

Ultimately, Musk wants to build Tesla Bots by the millions, taking advantage of hardware, software, manufacturing and supply chain advantages developed for its car business.

The Optimus effort, while still early, is among the most ambitious in the robotics world given how widespread and capable Tesla hopes the robots can become.

The first prototype of Optimus, the code name for the Tesla Bot, waves an arm at the Tesla AI Day 2022 event.

"It wasn't quite ready to walk, but I think it'll walk in a few weeks," Musk said of the second Optimus robot.

The second Optimus prototype weighs 161 pounds (73 kilograms).
