These bots take care or your orders in Amazon!
posted December 1 2014 21:26.01 by Giorgos Lazaridis




And you really have to see it to believe it! A robotic logistics system from Kiva Systems (a company Amazon bought for $775 million back in 2012) is responsible for moving around the warehouse and carrying those shelves with precision! George Lucas could not have thought of that! Ten fulfillment centers like this one are scattered across the US giving ground for more than 15,000 Kiva bots! Those numbers!

Want more numbers? 132,600 employees in June 2014, 80,000 more to be hired for the seasonal rush. 274 million USD Net income for 2013.
