Tesla is now working on human-like robots.

According to the company's website, the robots would be used for tasks that are considered "unsafe, repetitive or boring."

For the project, Tesla said it's searching for mechanical, electrical, control,s and software engineers to help the company expand its artificial intelligence fleet.

CNN reports that Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, joked that the robots will be friendly.

"We hope this does not feature in a dystopian sci-fi movie," Musk is quoted by CNN.

Tesla has not put a price on the robots. However, Musk plans to have one built by 2022.
