I was playing slots at Chinook Winds casino on the Oregon coast recently when much to my surprise a robot skittered past me.

WTF?

Turns out the casino is using robots to travel the casino floor, offering cold water in bottles to players.

Sort of like a Roomba: senses obstacles, avoids them, moves on.

Then in the buffet a robot roamed the floor with space on it for guests to place their dirty tablewear.

Are there similar robots roaming the casino floors in Sin City as well?

The waiters at Denny's were telling me about 6 years ago they were absolutely panicked about robots taking their jobs if they asked for a raise.

I walked into WalMart at opening hour recently and there were robot aisle cleaners roaming around, and they were very large and could qualify as a motor vehicle that could run me over.

Who is going to take everyone's job first, robots or illegal immigrants?

I have laughed the last 20 years or so when people say robots are going to take all the jobs. Don't people realize that someone still has to design and build the robots?

I get it, they are saying "robots are going to take my menial unskilled job". i say good. How about learn some new skills and stay ahead of the robots. If you can't do that, why would I feel sorry for you?

I think it will be many years before robots can do the job of a skilled tradesmen.
Plumbers, Mechanics etc..

the only thing you should be worried about is that those robots use LIDAR and LIDAR can actually "see" stuff physically in 3D spaces

yes it is theoretically possible to scan you and i would assume it has way more sensors on it as well which could further help identify you without the need for your ID

they have these things in grocery stores near me although they are most likely different looking

A casino I went to in Prague had one of these roaming around for empty cups.

Electronic table games, like bubble craps and stadium baccarat are robots too.

More than 6,500 slots and 1,300 electronic table games where I play, and not a dealer in sight.

Two techs to handle machine problems, two drink servers, two cashiers and four security guards on each floor.

Any machine that is programmed to do a specific task is a robot. A toaster is a robot.
