After Amazons pie-in-the-sky drone announcement, Google decided to tip its hand about one of their own ambitious projects: Building robots to replace humans in the workforce. The New York Times John Markhoff reports that Google wants to build a small army of machines that can operate in manufacturing and retail, either in assembly lines or in delivery trucks, respectively. There are still people who walk around in factories and pick things up in distribution centers and work in the back rooms of grocery stores, Andy Rubin, the projects head developer, and the guy who created the Android operating system told the Times. So, this confirms it: Google wants robots to take blue collar, low-wage human jobs.
