Robot Grocery Store Gives High-tech Upgrade to Food Shopping
The future of food shopping?
No more long lines at the grocery store – the future of food shopping is getting a high-tech upgrade.
Des Moines, Iowa is planning to build a first-of-a kind robotic grocery store as an experiment to offer food and necessities to locals anytime at their convenience.
A partnership between the nonprofit Eat Greater Des Moines and the business equipment firm Oasis24seven will see an automated, vending machine-style unit come to the area.
“Throughout Des Moines, there are areas of town where access to quality food is limited,” said Aubrey Alvarez, the nonprofit’s executive director. “We would love for a full service grocery store to move into these areas, but until that time the robotic unit will address the gap in the community.”
All this will accomplish will be the killing of millions of jobs for not just entry-level workers but also career workers who started from the bottom making minimum wage and rising to the level of grocery manager (the grocery manager at my Kroger makes at least $50,000 a year) to even store managers who make anywhere from $50,000 a year to $100,000+ a year.
In 1985, “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes – who recently passed away at the age of 69 – cut a promo against Ric Flair and what would soon become known as the Four Horsemen and used these prophetical words:
And hard times are when a man has worked at a job for thirty years, thirty years, and they give him a watch, kick him in the butt and say “hey a computer took your place, daddy”, that’s hard times!
