Tesla  (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc Report CEO Elon Musk unveiled Tesla Bot on its AI Day on Thursday. It's a humanoid robot, which the company intends to bring a prototype “sometime next year.”

Musk said that 5 foot 8 inches tall robot is “intended to be friendly” but “probably won’t work” at first. 

“It should be able to, you know, please go to the store and get me the following groceries, that kind of thing," said Musk. 

Musk revealed that the robot will be codenamed ‘Optimus.’ Optimus, which will weigh 125 pounds, could lift 150 pounds and run five miles per hour.

"We hope this does not feature in a dystopian sci-fi movie," Musk said.
