Very interesting. I wonder if the robots will be coin collectors after they replace all humans.

Silly me. I would not have thought that the volumes involved would justify the cost of automation.
Why collect coins? Memory is the second thing to go. The use of money is the last thing to go.

Hello, Skynet.

I'm not surprised at all given the lack of available manual labor in the market coupled with San Francisco's already high cost of labor/living. The improved quality is a bonus.

I'd like to see what they do to reduce dust.

Automation pays for itself over the long term.

Nice video - I had no idea that much automation was going on.
