According to Foxconn’s founder, Terry Gou, the company is working hard to partially replace their human workforce with one million robots. For those of you that don’t know, Foxconn manufactures components for Apple, Nokia and Sony devices.
Within the next year Foxconn plans on increasing the numbers of their robot workers from 10,000 to 300,000 and gradually phase out human-labor. The robots will be able to accomplish tasks such as spraying, assembling and wielding – so obviously humans will still be required for more tedious and precise tasks.
