Have you ever thought that robots can now do yoga? If not, then let us tell you that a robot has been prepared which can do yoga like humans. Tesla has given such training to the humanoid robot that it is capable of performing many types of tasks. A video of this robot Optimus has also been shared on X, in which he is seen doing yoga and sorting blocks and arranging them on the basis of color.
The video initially shows the robot’s ability to sort objects easily and at human-like speed, but when a human interferes with the task, the robot is able to successfully arrange the blocks correctly. .

Additionally, the robot is seen performing yoga postures, which require standing on one leg and stretching its limbs, showcasing its balance and flexibility.
According to the video, Optimus is now able to self-calibrate its arms and legs. It can precisely locate its limbs using vision and joint position encoders.
“Optimus can now sort objects autonomously,” it captioned the video shared from the official Tesla Optimus account. Its neural network is completely trained end-to-end, video in, control out. Come join us to help Optimus grow (and improve its yoga routine).”

Specifically, the video shows that Teslabot is now running on the same end-to-end neural network as Tesla cars, which can process video inputs and generate control outputs.
Reactions from users
CEO Elon Musk reacted to the video by writing “progress”, while social media users were impressed by the robot’s new abilities. “Optimus is very comfortable,” one said. I’m impressed.” Another said, “OMG! Amazing progress from the @Tesla team. Very good. I can’t wait to see the next jump in capabilities.”
At the moment, there is no information on when Teslabot will be ready for production or commercial use. ”Build a general-purpose, bi-pedal, autonomous humanoid robot capable of performing unsafe, repetitive, or boring tasks. Achieving that ultimate goal requires building software stacks that enable balance, navigation, perception, and interaction with the physical world.
What does Tesla say?
“We’re hiring deep learning, computer vision, motion planning, controls, mechanical and general software engineers to solve some of our toughest engineering challenges,” Tesla wrote about the Optimus robot on the page.
