    Now there’s going to be a potential rivalry. This time between Agility and Boston.

    I work in a factory in Central Wisconsin. My coworkers and I are capable of performing tasks at least three times faster than Digit. However, Digit doesn’t get sick or require vacation or benefits or demands weekends off. For most factory tasks, Digit could be tethered to a power source from overhead. Kinda makes me fear for my job. I am a huge fan of robotics and Digit is a huge leap forward in my opinion. Bear this in mind: Who are you really trying to help?

      Elderly care would be a good application as well. Helping carry heavy things and helping elderly get up when they fall.

    I think these start up robots like digit and tesla are doing great things. Unfortunally boson not yet. I like there robots but so far its just been for show.

    Sounds like something Amazon would try to use them realize it’s not that easy to replace humans until there is some rudimentary AI

    Hopefully this’ll get Amazon to finally stop mistreating their warehouse workers

      Will replace the majority of them. Universal basic income will become a reality for low iq people in the future.

    • CoriSparks

      September 17, 2021 at 6:27 pm

      @Joey Gonker wtf does IQ have to do with any of this?

    • Joey Gonker

      September 17, 2021 at 6:35 pm

      @CoriSparks Why would you want to waste time training an idiot when you can get a programmed robot to do the same job and not have to worry about them quitting. Humans suck when comes to manual labor.

    • CoriSparks

      September 17, 2021 at 6:46 pm

      @Joey Gonker Ah I see your point.

    UBI makes more sense all the time.

    • Josh Schoonover

      September 18, 2021 at 12:15 am

      And the ownership class will fight tooth and nail to stop implementing UBI.

      @Josh Schoonover agreed. And we’re nine meals from fighting back.

    I would like to see a less expensive robot that would help me in my home. At 80, I don’t climb ladders and I don’t lift stuff that is heavy. There is also the safety issue. If I fall, I need a little help getting up. Maybe in the near future.

    O great, can’t wait for the govt to make anit robot hate laws and discrimination because this will put more people out of work that need a job.

    That last part (putting a human personality in the robot) will be the end of humans

    Wow, Digit is exceptionally cool.

  34. Naiv

    September 18, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    i dont get it, you want them to deliver postparcels, their so slow, a human is more quick and efficient, and wouldnt you need to recharged them every block, and require human supervision, sounds too expensive?

  35. Carson Sandau

    I love it! With so many people not wanting to work anymore, these will be so helpful!
