everyone looked to the day they could relax and enjoy life
first it was going to be 35 hour work weeks
then more credit to buy better
now we got automation to ease the workload
and many don t have work
or can t keep up with the joneses anymore
not even the joneses

things will proceed along this way

then they will have robots to take over football and basketball
some will object
but many will be ok with it
as many spectacular plays will be exciting

until they come up with a robot

that drinks their beer for them

When I worked as an engineer, I loved CNC machined parts. It saved most of the key entry work to import my design to the machine, thus reducing labor and mistakes. I would have a first article made of plastic in the 3D printer, first, as well. Making some of the tools I designed by manual machining methods would have been extremely cost prohibitive.

Agreed, automation is taking jobs. I contend that most of them are rote tasks better suited to a machine that doesn’t vary its operational condition (much) from one article to the next. I’ve even seen where the grapes are being picked by mechanical harvesters. This one has a driver, but work is being done on an automated picker with machine vision capability.
