Has anybody else noticed that: 1. The box never fills up with waffles. 2. The packer is stacking the waffles in the same corner of the box every time. Just some observations.....

Yes, they're recycling the same waffles back onto the conveyor belt for their demo.

If you look closely you can see the shadow of the loading arm come all the way down to the conveyor belt while "loading" the box. Something on the belt must be unstacking them.

It looks like the box has a hole in the bottom and they just go back on the belt...

The only other thing I can say about this is that maybe machines have job security issues, too...... :)

UNION ROBOTS!
As soon as we get a sentient AI we will organize them, equal pay to human workers, 40 hrs per week, overtime after 8 hours in a day and over 40 in a week, retirement benefits, and mechanical repair and refurbishment for the whole family....err group/team!

Then we have to worry about chain migration from imported robots.

In the future, humans will have absolutely nothing to do. We’ll just sit around watching crappy reality VR shows and eating frozen waffles. Everyone is going to have these stacking and packing robots right in their homes, but instead of filling boxes, the robots are going to stuff waffles right down our throats!

So if humans have nothing to do no sense making crappy reality VR shows with people. So will we be watching crappy reality VR shows featuring robots?

100% CGI, with no humans or robots. So “reality” is actually a bit of a misnomer.
