Remarkably fascinating little video showing the Kiva robots in action in a busy warehouse. The robots know where everything is stored, automatically keeping more frequently requested items at the front, greatly reducing the number of humans required for the same job. Amazon was quick to use the system for its warehouses.

The future of warehouses may be one with fast shipments and few human employees if robots like Kiva Systems continue to invade the workplace.
