Ocado's new warehouse has thousands of robots zooming around a grid system to pack groceries. The thousands of robots can process 65,000 orders every week. They communicate on a 4G network to avoid bumping into each other. Is this the future of retail?

This is what happens when low skilled workers are duped into demanding $15+ an hour
I'll gladly let robots pick my order than deal with most retail drones that have no Customer service or interpersonal skills

as i understand it (im not party to whole world domination plan.. yet) - the outpouring of immigrant workers and lack of willingness to do anything other than watch Jeremy Kyle by the general British populace means that we have to have these robots in place so that we can keep the country turning..

its more like forced socialism for all where we are heading towards universal credit payments.. and being able to stay at home to watch Jeremy Kyle whilst complaining about our bad backs and not being able to get a proper job..

I'm truly sorry to hear about your bad back, at least there will be plenty of people retraining to stand in for you, though I wouldn't recommend Jeremy Kyle. Universal credit payments? I'd forgotten about them months ago are they still a thing?
