The humanoid robot has been named "Optimus" and is capable of performing various tasks. Musk also shared a video of the Optimus doing some tasks. The video described, "Optimus is now capable of self-calibrating its arms and legs. Using only vision and joint position encoders, it can precisely locate its limbs in space. Accurately calibrated, Optimus learns various tasks more efficiently. Its neural net runs entirely on-board, using only vision."

In the video shared by Musk, Optimus is seen sorting blue and green blocks into matching trays. The humanoid robot performs the task comfortably very much like a human would do. Even when a human moves the blocks around, the robot is able to complete the task successfully. In the later part of the video, the robot performs various Yoga moves.
