It's the end of the day on a Friday, and you didn't make it to the mall to pick up favors for your child's birthday party this weekend. So you log on to Amazon to see what's available for next-day delivery. In addition to the favors, you find lightbulbs to replace the burned-out bulb in your table lamp, and spot a new book that you decide to go for. You click "Place my order," and a short while later, robots in Amazon's fulfillment warehouses are whizzing away to make sure it's delivered to you right on time. The warehouse is full of small, flat robots that shimmy underneath shelves loaded full of everything from blenders to wool coats to table saws.
