Amazon Reveals the Robots at the Heart of Its Epic Cyber Monday Operation | WIRED

Excerpt from a state-of-the-art snapshot

For the past two years, the world’s largest online retailer has kept mostly quiet about how it was using the Kiva robots in its own operations. But on Sunday, the day before the high point of the internet retail year, Amazon opened its doors to show off the droids that are taking its warehouses to the next level of consumer gratification."
