This should had been done years ago.

Foxconn needs to be replace by a company with better upper management and leadership.

This really isn't anything new.... we have been relying on roberts for assembly here in the US for years. 90% of all machines I designed (while working in the auto assembly industry) had one or more robots on them.... In reality China is catching up to us in respect to using robots....

And they aren't robots like iRobot, they are 4 axis scara or 6 axis arm robot, made by ABB, Denso, Epson, Motoman, etc.

If used properly, this should improve China's quality.....

"we have been relying on roberts for assembly here in the US for years."--Would that include 'Bob the Builder'? XD

Wait a minute, if the Chinese workers replaced the US workers and robots are replacing the Chinese workers exactly who is going to have a job to buy the products.

The workers actually live on the property and rely fully on the company and now robots are going to be kicking them out of their dorms. Remember Bender only needs a closet and thats his whole house. Thos robots only need some oil, beer, and peanuts to survive. I'm sure these poor people are going to be killing themselves in droves with the prospects of becoming homeless a certainty.
