During a recent earnings call, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk referred to the company’s humanoid robot lab, likening it to something out of the HBO drama “Westworld” and even inviting the show’s creators for a tour. However, Tesla executive Drew Baglino cautioned against using “Westworld” as a comparison due to the show’s darker themes involving robots killing people.

Earlier, Musk shared a video on X showcasing the lab’s progress, featuring a robot named Optimus folding a shirt. Tesla had previously released footage showing a motor design engineer working on a robot in a warehouse-like space equipped with tool storage shelves.

While specific details about the lab, named Optimus, remain undisclosed, Tesla actively hired for over 50 robotics roles last year, many of which were based in Palo Alto, California. Musk also indicated during the earnings call that there is a “good chance” the company will begin shipping units of Optimus next year, and that updates on the project’s progress will be provided to the public every few months.
