Warehouse Jobs…

One aspect of our robotic future that is always the elephant in the room concerns the possibility of chronic underemployment as robots become able to displace more complex jobs with lower operating costs.  This video interview shows off the fascinating Kiva Systems robots for warehouse operations. 

What’s more, Amazon bought Kiva Systems yesterday for north of 700 million dollars- so you can imagine the value they see in this solution for their massive operations across the world.  One article about this sale is in TechChrunch.
