    Robocop. It is equipped with electroshock weaponry to incapacitate shoplifters, ice cream lickers, etc.

    Without being monitored.... Who'll watch the watchers?

    While I believe you, how does it count the Frosted Flakes boxes hiding behind the one up front? RFID?

    Would it be disruptive to ol' Sam the Robo-walmartian if we moved stuff all around the store? Maybe a little "civil disobedience"?

    They have a larger cone shaped one at a local shopping center for security. Ran over a kid's foot. Fortunately my encounter with it was benign. I'm wondering if you could get it to follow you by "acting suspicious".

    2 days ago I told a customer that our automated scrubber was just a haunted regular scrubber.
    I hope he tells his friends, if people think its haunted, maybe I wont find it on cinder blocks one morning (it's an interesting store...)

    Walmart is going automated on instock scanners, scrubbers, and the conveyer/sorter for unloading trucks.
    Ironically, the robot scrubber didn't impact the hours allotted for overnight maintenance, but 2 years ago they switched to "one coat" wax and that cost 3 FT people worth of hours.
    And the robo sorter didn't take second shift unloading hours away.
    I'm fairly certain theres a termination protocol in the machines to avoid paying severance packages.
    It's just a theory..... until stock prices fall and wages become the most controllable of all controllable expenses.

    Who knew, Skynet starts @ big box retail

    I live 90 miles from the nearest Walmart. Those robots will never find me.:lol:

    Besides, no way in heck could they make it up my rocky dirt road.:cool:

    Good luck to those living in the concrete jungle.;)
