Flippy and his friends. How Covid-19 pandemic is creating new job opportunities… for robots.

As the world adapts to the pandemic reality, industries are taking various measures to keep their businesses going. Aim is to reduce the physical interactions between people, and minimize the risk of spreading the virus.
And so the automation of workforce enters new areas and conquers new frontiers. Crowded spaces of restaurant kitchens and convenience stores are some of those.

The opportunities offered by sterile machines become even more tempting, in times were survival of your business could depend on hygienics and cleanliness.

Is that a trend that will help save the economy or is it another step on dehumanising yet another industry?

As one one of the managers, interviewed in the videos below put its:

“People are concerned with human beings involved with their food, and the spread of disease. So if you eliminate human beings from equation in some way shape or form, and replace them with robots people tend to feel safer. “

Sounds like this is where we are heading. Eliminating humans from the equation.

Feels so much safer already, doesn’t it?
