So why do they need a human to take it off a chute and put it onto the robot?

Even if it's to make sure there's only one packet per robot, or to see the label's up the right way - surely a machine ccan do that.

Don't worry, coming soon.  As wages increase and more paid time off is mandatory and overtime pay laws continue, there becomes increasing incentive to reduce the human work force and replace as many as possible with robots that never complain about working hours, time off, break time, pay raises, and poor working conditions.

In the video where they are automating boats, they said this will make your Nike’s cheaper.  Actually, the shoes have optimized pricing already.  The company prices them based upon what the market will pay, not based solely on their costs.  If they can reduce their costs, that does NOT translate into reduced retail prices.  It translates more directly to increases in profit for the company.
