Elon Musk announced that Tesla is creating a humanoid robot.

Musk said the "Tesla Bot" will have a screen where a person's face would be.

Musk said it's being designed to perform boring, repetitive and dangerous tasks.

"It's intended to be friendly, of course, and navigate through a world built for humans. We're setting it such that it is, at a mechanical level, at a physical level, you can run away from it," Musk said during an event announcing the robot.

Well, that's comforting. But I've seen this movie and it didn't turn out well for the humans.
