@t.alex,


You are right, and that is why the use of robots will buy more into our daily lives more which is whuy there is fear of increase in joblessness.

While watching the robots at work is visually impressive, I think the technology that identifies the materials, and scans for the size and shape, are really intriguing. These are the technolgies that tell the robots what and how to pick up the scraps, and where to deposit them. Very cool application.

@SP, In Some part of Africa, recycling of waste is one of the ways jobs are provided for the masses. some companies are into plastic, aluminum and iron recycling. so people go from places to places picking these stuffs and carry them to these companies. They weigh them according to how many kilograms the person picks. But this is yet to solve much of paper waste and water waste.

@Ariella, you are right on that, we will keep seeing more technology in the area of recycling especially when it saves resources and cost. I heard a guy that invented a machine that recycles water used for bathing to exact or nearest pure state before it was used and send it back to the over head tank for you. This saves cost and also resources

These robots are actually extremely helpful. We can't put human into such a hazardous environment.

t.alex, 

Well, wouldn't that depend on if they want to sell the company to Google? I don't think they would. :)

SP, 

It's great you have that green team. :) Everything starts small. If people start green teams everywhere the whole planet would benefit from it. It's very nice you are involved in recycling activities, too.

_hm, 

Maybe the parts in the videos are small, but they could be up to 20kg. What kind of filter do you mean?

SP, 

Yes, it sorts out metal, stone, and wood now. It can be upgraded and it will sort out more materials. If you watch the videos you can see it in action.
