The robot to human delivery system will replace this kind of painful-sounding work we hear Amazon’s warehouse workers now experience, as described last September in a Morning Call exposé:
One former temporary warehouse employee said he worked seven months before he was terminated for not working fast enough. In his 50s, he worked 10 hours a day, four days a week as a picker, plucking items from bins and delivering them to packers who put them in boxes for shipment. He would walk 13 to 15 miles daily
The plot centers around a trio of factory workers that have been tasked by the company president to develop a humanoid robot. With only one week left before the robot’s unveiling at a major trade show, disaster strikes when their prototype accidentally falls out a window and is smashed.
They recruit a retired senior who just happens to perfectly fit inside the humanoid robot’s shell and attempt to con everyone, including the press, into thinking that the new robot is every bit as good as ASIMO.
It’s kind of like Weekend at Bernie’s except with an old guy in a robot suit and funnier. (All three trailers in clip)
