Android or Halloween costume elaborate?
A photographer spotted something intriguing carried in the back of a pickup truck at SpaceX’s “Starbase” testing facility in South Texas.
A picture shared by RGV Aerial Photography – which is supported by Patreon – shows what appears to be some sort of robot armor.
The purpose of the lawsuit is still unclear. We have no idea what it is, who made it, or what it’s for.
But given that Tesla, the auto company of SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, recently revealed that it is working on a humanoid robot called the Tesla Bot, the discovery is more than bizarre. We have a lot of questions.
For now, all we can do is hazard a guess.
“Did Elon Musk finally start working on the Iron-Man suit?” A redditor rang. “Because it looks like Mark I.”
They are not wrong. It looks more than a little like Tony Stark’s first fictional version of his Iron Man suit in the Marvel franchise.
One thing’s for sure: if it’s meant for Halloween festivities, someone put a lot of work into it.
“It doesn’t look like a decoration,” suggested another editor. “It looks like a costume a human could wear.”
The craftsmanship, others have pointed out, is impressive. The suit appears to be made of aluminum and incorporates what looks like pads for comfortable wearing.
In other words, are we envisioning an extremely elaborate Halloween costume?
“All kidding aside, someone spent a lot of time on this thing,” one editor said.
Tesla once tried to sell a costumed dancer as the first prototype of his Tesla Bot on stage – no one would have been fooled.
Is SpaceX now trying to do the same? It is a great mystery. Maybe on October 31st we will have an answer.
