Meet Stretch, a prototype of our new robot designed to automate box moving tasks in warehouses and distribution centers. Stretch’s mobile base allows it to go to where repetitive box lifting is required - unloading trucks, building pallets of boxes and order building. Stretch makes warehouse operations more efficient and safer for workers.
Stretch’s technology builds upon our decades of advancements in robotics to create a flexible, easily integrated solution that can be deployed in any warehouse. Learn more at www.bostondynamics.com/stretch.

It's the liberation from repetitive jobs, and that's fine: it was alienating. But how do people without money in Western society live? Social welfare? It is a time of conscious choices.

I workedat Target. I can immediately tell there are issues and limitations to this fantastic robot in regards being able to grab/lift and move payloads as fast as a regular loader/unloader team. The sheer variety of products, shapes, weights, and and the way they are stacked on a truck would absolutely fuck with how viable these would be. Especially if there are messes, PIPOS, cramped quarters, etc. My guess is that a team of loaders would accompany the robot or vice versa. Smaller shops and certain big-box stores would still need people for a while.

John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved..

I'm sharing with people Salvation which you can read about and why the need of Salavtion is relevant. Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. This is because Jesus lived a life without sin which we can not do and he was sacrificed for our sins and payed for the sins of the world, and then he was raised from death having paid for all our sins "if you accept Gods sacrifice "Freewill" 2 Peter 3:9 KJV The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

If the boxes werent empty the cardboard would tear
Marrs101 2 days ago
I mean it all looks cool, effective and professional, but let's not forget that those were empty cardboard boxes with no weight in them. So first the cardboard box has to be able to hold the weight at the bottom without any support from below. Well, good luck with that. Actually picking up boxes various weight and size and shape WHILE supporting the bottom is a different thing. Understanding what's in it so you can support it properly is a different thing. 'Well yes, we just put them in stronger boxes...' The whole system works only because the packeging is virtually weightless and dirt cheap. Handling is not a mindless task. And those are not random boxes loaded into random containers. This system as it is only useful in very narrow settings. This demonstration is all programmed beforehand, boxes being weightless and placed to the right spot so the robot 'finds it'. This is not REACTING to real life challenges. Ever seen a container after a stormy sea crossing? Everything is shifted and moved and dameged? This is a 'perfect world' scenario, not areal one.

Robot önce kutulara endeksliydi, sonradan metalik bir kargo ile karşılaştı evşrdi, çevirdi bir şeye benzetemedim, en iyisi bunu yere koyayım dedi. Sarı boyalı robot, rahvan atlar gibi zıp zıp zıplaya zıplaya uzaklaştı, o da yetmedi, kargo boşaltma robotu, arkasından ilerleyip diğer robotun yanına gitti, kafa kafaya değdirip, ya ben sana bir şey sorucam, sorsam mı sormasa mı? Derken, diğer kargo robot bence sor dedi. Ellerini arkalarına koyup iki düşünceli arkadaş gibi volta atarak yürümeye (pardon ilerlemeye) başladılar. Derken aniden yanlarından hızla, ayakları ve kolları olan robot hızla geçti. İşte o anda ayakları olmayan betonarme robot diğerine bakarak :"işte tam bunu soracaktım? Acaba sen tanıyor musun bu garip şeyi? dedi." 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

What if the content inside the box is too heavy? The robot holds only from the above and the content falls off from the bottom.
