"Working in cages," the strange Amazon patent

Amazon2016, Amazon filed a scary one Diploma of Patent which describes a system that places people in cages to protect them from machinery.

Characterized as "an excellent illustration of alienation of workers and a strong moment in the relationship between people and machines", this patent came to the fore after a recent study published on Friday.

The patent focuses on robot-only facilities in Amazon warehouses, where people need access to machines for repair, maintenance or receipt of an object.

There are many areas on Amazon's premises, where there are many large, moving machines. The patented system hopes to replace the existing one by placing people in cages carried by robotic trolleys.

In accordance with The Seattle Times, Amazon replied that it had not applied technology in the past and does not plan to do so in the near future. On Twitter, Dave Clark, who takes care of the warehouse and supply of the company, said that sometimes even bad ideas are being filed for patents.

Dave Clark also said that Amazon has already developed a better solution, which is a vest that an employee can wear. This vest ensures that all robotic units moving on the site stop just when one of the employees is approaching wearing it.

While Amazon has rejected this idea, it certainly presents a terrifying image of how machines could dominate the industries and the workplace.
