What just happened? Last year Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled the company's intent to deliver a functional prototype robot by 2022. However, all we got was a person dancing in a bodysuit and the promise of progress. Today's AI Day 2022 showed the first evidence of that progress.
WTF?! A Tesla owner has seen his TikTok video about the car's apparent shortcomings go viral. Mario Zelaya said that he had been locked out of his Tesla Model S after the battery died, which would have cost him $21,000 to replace.
