Tesla AI Day: As Elon Musk teases the Optimus robot, self-driving updates and artificial intelligence – here’s what to expect

After months of tweets and teases, Elon Musk is attempting to manage expectations ahead of Tesla’s AI Day tonight.

Tesla on Friday morning shared a short clip of a pair of robotic hands making a heart shape. ‘The hands of Optimus. That is not CGI,’ the mogul tweeted in the afternoon.

Musk said that people can expect ‘lots of technical detail and cool hardware demos’ at the Palo Alto, California event that’s being livestreamed beginning at 6:15 pm Pacific Time.
