Meet Frida, The Robot That’ll Staff The 24-Hour Production Line

Swiss manufacturer ABB has revealed a prototype robot called Frida that’s designed to be dexterous enough to replace a human  being on a production line. ABB has made an effort to note it doesn’t see robots like Frida stealing jobs in the future—it’s designed to work alongside people, and could  be very useful when a production line process changes and a reprogrammed  robot could be retrained faster than a human worker.

It’s a good thing they don’t make robots that blog! Job security: Check
Oh Wait. Damn!
Frida video demo awaits.
