Waiting for TeslaNoBot today?

Gary Marcus and many many AI/Robotics people are very sceptical. And we know Musk has been hiring a great team but unless he's leveraging some other company's hard work, there's no way for an Optimus today. (srsly, my money's on Agility Robotics)

Robotics funding reaches new highs in 2022!
