Boston Dynamics has introduced a new robot named Stretch designed for automating 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.
I'm glad Boston Dynamics is finally making a robot that might actually be profitable, but this is probably their most terrifying robot yet. As best as I can tell, their plan is to replace every worker and force them to live on the streets so that they can send in their extermination robots to finish the job.
