First sighting of FoxBots in China

October 15, 2012

Foxconn said they would be deploying 1 million robots in their factories in China. The first photographs of one of those appeared in Chinese news last week.
10,000 turquoise FoxBots have been installed in a factory in Jincheng, China.
News sources estimate that Foxconn is behind schedule to meet their goal of 300,000 by the end of 2012; 30,000 appears to be the real number.
But the big story is that these robots appear to have been built by Foxconn itself.
