The future will be fully automated. That is, at least in the case of warehouses. Today, warehouses all around the world have a large number of robots working for them, helping them to accomplish tasks more safely and efficiently.
These active robots combine the finest of science, technology, and engineering to become extremely useful machines that manufacture the vast majority of the products you use every day.
They are the future. It is automation at its most effective, and it creates some pretty amazing results in the process.
