    Default Once upon a time, this was science fiction.

    : TESLA robotics . . .
    Simply incredible --

    This is the fewest employees procedure (3000).The nut and bolt guys that built cars in the past are not present.
    High tech employees only (+ 140 amazing robots)

    Henry Ford would flip over after seeing this . . .

    The TESLA ASSEMBLY PLANT IN FREMONT, CALIFORNIA - Pretty Amazing.

    Watch this and you'll better understand why manufacturing jobs will never be what they once were.

    Yep thats the way its going.

    My small foray into technology is an auto cutting table, but can see a time when I have a robotic sewing machine.

    In oz we are doing a great job of putting ourselves out of work. The introduction of the Grand final eve public holiday was my "enough" moment to start investing in technology.

    I will never be the person who has everything, not when someone keeps inventing so much cool new stuff to buy.

    From an early age my father taught me to wear welding gloves . "Its not to protect your hands son, its to put out the fire when u set yourself alight".

    To be honest I am not seeing much there that has not been around for ten years or more.

    Robots were welding cars together in the 1980's weren't they? As robots get cheaper to build and software gets more powerful, companies can afford to install more robots and less workers.

    Down the track, I think we will see many managerial and paperwork jobs replaced by software.

    The jobs that are safe are the ones that require visual acuity and dexterity. Like a mechanic for example.

    Isn't that job now described as "Auto parts replacement technician", mainly because they now plug a laptop into the car and the computer tell them what parts need to be replaced!!!!!!

    Pretty much.

    A flip side to folks losing their jobs. As hard as it is to believe, (at least in some trades like plumber) seems that employers are having troubles getting apprentices. I did a job for a large plumbing firm here and they struggle to get apprentices. Watched some media stuff recently on the same subject, they don't seem to be Robinson Crusoe. When I pressed this guy as to why they have troubles, one reason he was given was "oh I can get more $ working at maccas flipping burgers". "Just wait until you go onto adult wages and have your hours cut in favour of some 15 yo on cheaper rates!!"

    That's the trouble, they only look at the now picture, not ahead in 5 years time after they finish the apprenticeship, when they could be naming their own price to work for someone.
    Everyone wants a job where they start at the top, the only 2 jobs that I know of where you can do that, is Digging Post holes and being a Grave Digger.
