"It can't be a coincidence that the Tesla Optimus walks like Joe Biden. Is it?," a user wrote.

One more user mentioned, "Who isn’t impressed by the progress of Optimus development? Remember the 1st clumsy-walking Optimus not that long ago? The progress is insane. When do you think Optimus will be commissioned at job sites?".

Last month, Musk shared a video of Optimus folding a shirt, followed by a disclaimer: "Important note: Optimus cannot yet do this autonomously, but will certainly be able to do this fully autonomously and in an arbitrary environment (won't require a fixed table with box that has only one shirt)."

As per the company, the robot is using the same artificial intelligence (AI) software and sensors present in Tesla's advanced driver assistance system called 'Autopilot'.
