    @ScubaJonL In fact this is the only way to compete with ultra cheap foreign labor. I agree with everything you said.

  2. Hell yeah robots …
    yeah robots are working for us !! Hooray. Normally it should be a reason to be happy, but in this wacky world it’s a reason to be scared because we’re losing our jobs!! Isn’t that just stupid? Why do we worry we lose our jobs if there’s the robot at the service all time to work? Well, they don’t work for us, they work for the owners of the company. Then who will buy the products if we got no jobs? These are questions that challenge capitalism nowdays. It was great 100 years ago …

  3. Govt schools aren’t …
    Govt schools aren’t adequately teaching kids that most labor jobs are obsolete, while charging taxpayers $10-15k/year for each, and govt ensures more jobs are taken over by robots or outsourced by having the minimum wage law for the students who get an inferior education. Govt is really screwing workers both ways by pretending to be on their side.

    @idioticrandomguy the robots have 2D bar-codes on the ground every 3ft or so which is unique to that location. that location is then communicated to a computer that is the traffic controller of all the robots.

  5. I saw this system …
    I saw this system at a warehouse recently. They had just moved from a smaller traditional warehouse . With this KIVA, they have twice the space, twice the capacity to move orders and MORE EMPLOYEES than before. The efficiencies of the system is CREATING MORE JOBS, not less.

  6. This isn’t the …
    This isn’t the first time in history something like this has happened. During the Industrial Revolution numerous jobs became obsolete. People then adapted just as we will now. I really don’t see humans becoming “obsolete” anytime in the near future.

  7. no duh…NO aliens …
    no duh…NO aliens are doing our jobs…i already know that im explaining why people are hanging themselves because of the gm plant, wall street bankers, and ROBOTS are depriving struggling families of their jobs

  8. Monetary system has …
    Monetary system has to go because robots will be doing almost all human jobs aside from scholarly soon enough. Best thing you can do is become 100% self sufficient so you don’t need money to pay anyone for anything.

  9. Change social …
    Change social system is the only way because this type of thing will spread and spread. First thing to go will be low paying jobs like cleaning and warehouses etc. Our social system will fall as it should and sooner would be better than later.

  10. Yes it will put …
    Yes it will put people out of work. But is the solution to do things less efficiently? They could get ride of robots, conveyors, forklifts and machines and employ 400 Americans at minimum wage to push carts and carry boxes individually… just like the Amish would.

    If you’re worried about American jobs, buy American products (so stop going to Wal-Mart) but don’t criticize American companies for being competitive through efficiency!

  11. its a pretty good …
    its a pretty good looking system but it could put plenty of hard working Americans with families out of a job

  12. It´s an amazing …
    It´s an amazing machine, speaking about costs and efficiency. The side effect is that most human skills are not technology-oriented so they will be left aside.
    Could be a bad thing for the future unless HR areas focus a lot more on tranning people.
    The fact is that technology won’t wait for no one, so you must be updated or be removed.

    F kiva! i work in a warehouse and we just put in Kiva and it takes jobs! You know who Kiva is good for? The people that own the company. Not the people that work for them. Keep things old fashon!
