    That movie is the daily experience. Minus the forbidden hazmat of course. I don't think I could get some preloaders to load sand that well.

    They walk like they really, really have to poop.
  11. ya, but can they retape those 150 pound trampolines all falling out of the "box"?

    Now, they need to program the robot to use opposite, diagonal corners to lift.

    But can you imagine an army of those things, with weapons?

    It's hard not to humanize the response you expect. I kept expecting that robot to grab that hockey stick and shove it up that guy's ass.

    yeah look how well it picks up that weightless box and walks through that area in the snowy woods they cleared of dead fall. Or that controlled office space with no pedestrian traffic or other chaotic factors.....

    This technology is way farther off than what many of you are suggesting.

    Not only that what happens when these are out in the streets and some kids decide to smash it with a bat or just trip it and it sits there for 3 hours before some technology sup dummy goes out and checks? Never going to work until society is redesigned to not base towns around roads for people driven cars. So several hundred years or never.

    I bet UPS hasn't invested much in this because they need to justify spending so much on ORION. They p[probably have a date they need to use ORION till to "show" that it made them money LOL.

  15. I have always wondered if they have any investment in teleportation.

    they will concentrate on automating their hubs first. also logistics is probably a big priority . not much manpower overhead there.

    that was what I was told by a top district manager about 10 years ago. already seen some of that in the NorthBay hub in Richmond, CA. not sure how well that has turned out.
