From November 5th to 10th, the 5th China International Import Expo was held in Shanghai. The 6-day CIIE became a big stage for Chinese and foreign companies to "show" their products, brighten their technologies, talk about cooperation, and talk about friendship. Hundreds of items New products, new technologies and new services were unveiled on the banks of the Huangpu River. Entering the exhibition area of this year's CIIE, it is both novel and fun. Looking around, they are all head-to-head cutting-edge technologies.

Robots, bionic hands, the future reaches out from the "Metaverse"

At the CIIE, the humanoid robot Tesla Bot, previously released on Tesla 2022 AI Day, came to the CIIE, but it was only displayed as a model. It is reported that the Tesla robot weighs 73kg and has a built-in 2.3kWh battery pack. The technology it uses is closely related to the Tesla car chip, FSD algorithm, and construction logic. Tesla Bot can complete basic actions such as walking, climbing stairs, squatting, and picking up objects, as well as high-precision actions such as grasping thin objects and operating mechanical devices.

An interesting observation.
Scott Walter the robotics expert noticed Optimus’ feet had changed during the Tesla Investor Day 2023(2nd March 2023).

But the footage of Optimus at CIIE 2022 shows the arched feet, meaning this change must have been implemented sometime between Optimus first debut on 1st October 2022 at Tesla AI day and the date the CIIE footage was shot on 6th November 2022.

This shows the rapid pace at which Tesla is developing this robot.
