Mercedes Replaces Robots With People

According to this report, Mercedes has replaced assembly line robots with real people. Uh oh, now robots are going to be really pissed at us.

"Robots can't deal with the degree of individualization and the many variants that we have today," said the company's head of production Markus Schaefer. "We're saving money and safeguarding our future by employing more people." The change comes at a time when a number of companies are replacing people with robotic devices.
