Anand Mahindra Impressed by Amazing Robots |



Robots have been around for some time now but as the technology grows, robotics applications in multiple fields and scenarios have certainly wowed people from different sections. One recent example left Anand Mahindra, chairman of Mahindra Group, amazed to a level that he admitted is far more important than robotics in car making.
Mahindra shared a 30-second clip on X (formerly Twitter) that showed a robot cleaning a bathroom by itself.
“A robot Janitor by Somatic; cleaning bathrooms all by itself? Amazing! As automakers, we are accustomed to using a variety of Robots in our factories. But this application, I admit, is far more important. We need them… NOW,” said Mahindra, who has been a regular on the Elon Musk-owned microblogging platform.

Mahindra received a response, “inko b tip milegi” (they will also get tips) to which he responded with a “smiling face with smiling eyes” emoji.
Elon Musk showcases Tesla’s humanoid robot
Recently, Musk showed off the latest model of Tesla’s humanoid robot, Optimus, working in a factory. He shared a clip of the robot folding a shirt. In the short clip, the Tesla humanoid robot retrieves a black t-shirt from a bucket and proceeds to fold it with ease.
“Optimus folds a shirt,” he said in the post.

In the subsequent post, the billionaire clarified that the robot cannot do this (fold a shirt) autonomously but will be able to do it sometime later.
“Important note: Optimus cannot yet do this autonomously, but certainly will be able to do this fully autonomously and in an arbitrary environment (won’t require a fixed table with [a] box that has only one shirt),” he added.
In December, Musk shared a video in which the second generation of the Optimus robot was seen doing human-like tasks like handling eggs, walking and dancing.
