    Episode 26 | Will the new TESLA robot be our salvation, or our destruction? |Robots for the blind

    Episode 26 | Will the new TESLA robot be our salvation, or our destruction? |Robots for the blind

    Today we explore the world of Tesla's humanoid robots and their potential as personal assistants for the blind community. Could the Optimus Gen II be the ideal solution for the visually impaired? Tesla unveiled their groundbreaking prototype humanoid robot in 2021, and just two years later, they announced the third-generation model called Optimus. These highly advanced robots closely resemble humans and possess a range of impressive capabilities. As Tesla pushes forward with their ambitious plans, we question whether these robots could be a game-changer for the disabled community, particularly the blind and visually impaired. In this episode, we delve into the features of the Optimus Gen II and compare it with Boston Dynamics' robot, Atlas. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive understanding of how these robotic advancements can revolutionize personal assistance for the visually impaired. However, an important consideration is the accessibility and affordability of these robots. Will they be freely available to the blind community, or will they follow a different economic model? We value our viewers' perspectives on this crucial matter. Join the conversation and share your thoughts on whether having a robot as a personal assistant for the blind is a viable option in the next 10 years. As we explore the intersections of technology, disability, and progress, we want to hear from you. Be part of a community fascinated by assistive technology for the blind, interested in robotics, future technology, and the advancements made by companies like Tesla. #teslarobot #Teslabot #OptimisGenII #RobotsForTheBlind @Tesla

Great resource for everything blind life

I lost my eye sight a few years back. I discovered Sam’s YouTube channel shortly after.

Thank you, Sam for all you do.
