    Link: Robot Army Helps Run Warehouses - The design of these autonomous orange robots is simply brilliant. The future is here!

    2 questions:
    1) Why do you need the guy who pulls the product and sticks it into the box? I bet that could be automated too.
    2) What happens when the "central computer" realizes this and begins killing all humans? Has John Connor seen this video yet?

    I don`t think robots killing the world are an issue when you can give any random American a gun.

    Why not make a robot that can stick a sticker on the box? Then another robot to work the computer? This is not the future. These are Roomba`s with a jack.

    So, illegal alien warehouse workers can also be replaced by machines.
    Take that Mexico! How`s it feel when you`re losing your job!

    @8bitzero-
    Dang, you are sooo clever. You can take a simple post about automated robots, and find a way to slam america and gun owners. Congrats on your superior opinions. America obviously needs more Europeans like you to help us get by.

    I think that this is a good thing for efficiency.
    However, I think that having these moving shelves sorting out the layout but having a robot arm mounted onto a similar device so that items can be sorted, swapped between shelves and restocked autonomously would be good. They could even pack the stuff, all that needs to happen is that an automated system processes orders and orders parts which one of those auto-cars that google has delivers, they are brought into the factory, processed and then taken to another autocar and delivered to stores or to the postal system. Then automate the postal system.

    This is great- just think of all the applications this can be applied.
    Soon, we can cease educating the masses, they can just push the button with the cute little picture- no need to be able to read, write, cypher, or really think at all.
    C`mon, you know governments want stupid masses to control...

    @turdburglar
    Thanks for the HILARIOUS joke in my name there.
    Also, I can`t seem to get sarcasm across in a text based conversation so when you state "America obviously needs more Europeans like you to help us get by". I take that seriously.
    Killed any more black people lately? Also, what I said is true. We should fear the yanks wielding a gun than a robot that moves shelves.
