From rockets to space-age trucks, Elon Musk's brand has promised all sorts of weird and wonderful inventions over the years, and this latest addition is certainly the weirdest. But the internet doesn't seem to think it's the most wonderful. 

At Tesla's AI Day event this week, Musk announced that the company is working on a 'Tesla Bot' – a humanoid robot designed to do "boring, repetitive and dangerous work". Yep, it seems we could be inching closer to the likes of films such as I, Robot (or, heaven forbid, The Terminator) – complete with eerily human character design.
