When Apple Comes Home, Thank a Robot - Robotics Business Review
Robot Launchpad stashed this in +Robots+
"When Apple comes home—and it will happen sooner than anyone, even Apple, would ever imagine—we’ll need to thank the triumvirate of rising wages overseas, automation and robots, especially robots."
It takes five days and 325 steps to assemble an IPad.
The 325 steps and five assembly days needed to bring an iPad to life are in the hands of 300,000 Chinese workers at Foxconn’s Longhua factory. It’s those 300,000 pairs of assembly hands that robots will replace.
Automata are great for automation.
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto!
