Foxconn, manufacturer of many of the world’s favourite gadgets has started its own robotic revolution. The first small step has now been taken with Foxconn recently activating the first batch of 10,000 Foxconn robots or Foxbots.
The trials and tribulations of Foxconn over the last two years could fill volumes. Making the situation worse for Foxconn everything they try seems to make the situation worse. Installing suicide nets, exorcisms and pay rises have all failed to ease Foxconn’s HR PR nightmare.
Have no fear though Foxconn’s president Terry Gou is a man with a plan, the first 10,000 Foxbots have now been activated and another 20,000 are due to be installed before the end of 2012, the Foxbot revolution is now underway.
