AI Images of Elon Musk Kissing Female Robots Baffles the Internet | “The ‘Black Mirror’ Trailer Just Dropped”
The internet has gotten accustomed to Elon Musk and his crazy (Twitter-related) antics. But we can bet nobody was expecting to wake up in the morning only to be greeted by Musk making out with a bunch of robotic women. A series of pictures featuring the tech billionaire and humanoid robots resembling beautiful women started making rounds on social media after @danielmarven posted them on May 16, 2023. At first, people were left confused and shocked while looking at the realistic images of Musk locking lips with the robots. However, upon closer inspection, it turned out to be something else.
@danielmarven, who posted the viral images, wrote in the caption of the pictures: "Elon Musk announces the future wife. Who is she? It is the first robot that has been manufactured specifically designed with artificial intelligence with the personality and the characteristics of the female that he dreams of." He continued talking about the particular robot which was getting all lovey-dovey with Musk, "Catnilla works with solar energy without charging, it is equipped with sensory means that make her feel sad and happy and she has a balanced and interactive mindset…so she can share it if she is in a crisis or feeling that she is experiencing or needs when she is exposed to any psychological stress."

To confirm the authenticity of the images, Marven also added that these images are generated with AI and the post is to clarify the dangers of artificial intelligence, especially after Tesla Company released the first integrated robot. According to Greek Reporter, Tesla introduced their latest humanoid robot named Optimus which is now capable of slowly walking around a Tesla facility and mimicking the task with its human-like hands. However, Musk's company has a long way to go before creating a robot that can pass as a human with ease.

Sure enough, these AI horror show left the internet in splits. A good number of people assumed that it was a real photograph whereas others could detect that it was generated with AI prompts and compared it to the "trailer of sci-fi horror tv series Black Mirror." Netizens even questioned whether Musk wanted to settle for robots after fathering several children with real women.

This post does clarify one of the dangers of AI - it is being used to generate images like these to fool people into thinking they are real.— David Bean (@Davidthebean) May 20, 2023

Someone been spending too much time writing AI image generation prompts it appears. Pretty sure no one needed any of this today, or EVer.— (Lightning)Ryan Fulcher (@D0li0) May 22, 2023
Well, we can unanimously agree on one thing AI is the future of technological development and there might be a time in the future when it will get difficult to differentiate between real humans and AI-generated ones. So, all we can do is sit still and watch the AI apocalypse take over along with Musk's bizarre decisions for Twitter.
