The Kid Should See This

Meet the robot workers at Amazon

In this facility in Boston, Massachusetts, small orange Amazon robots are built, tested, and autonomously driven onto shipping pallets for transport to Amazon fulfillment centers around the country. It’s a ‘nursery’ for brand new robots that are designed, built, deployed, and supported by humans to meet the demand of the e-commerce company’s clients.

Chief Technologist at Amazon Robotics Tye Brady posits that this technology creates new kinds of jobs as it replaces old ones, but how does that affect those people who used to perform those old jobs? This clip from NOVA Wonders, narrated by co-host Dr. Talithia Williams, explores that question.

Next, watch more robot videos, including Madeline the Robot Tamer & Mimus, Building a Volcano-bot, Hop aboard this driverless bus in Trikala, Greece, and Behind the Scenes of How the Tesla Model S is Made.
