Yaskawa’s Motoman DIA10: Scaring the mailboys away

Well, as if robots taking over your doctors and construction workers weren’t enough, you might soon be entering DHL and Fedex stores only to be greeted by the plastic grin of a robot sorting your mail. You think that’s funny? Well, if Yaskawa has its way, it won’t be. The Yaskawa Motoman DIA10 can sort a supposedly impressive 1000 pieces of mail in under one hour. Time effective, huh? They say, it’s meant to provide backup for your mail-workers, but think about it, would a company , really care about backup, if it got a robot that could do almost 10 people’s work almost 10 times faster? I don’t think so. You and I might become the backups for robots some day, coz it looks like they’re hell bent on doing anything you and me could. (NiRa)
