    CNBC: "This robot can assemble IKEA furniture in 20 minutes"

    It's the device making plans left being given explicit instructions that is novel; hypothetically it can 'figure out' how to assemble other things given the right prompts.

    Wow that robot putting the chair together is really crappy. It had set algorithms already programmed in and it was still really slow. When will the robot loving people admit defeat, robots will never take over. Funny how elon musk learnt how limited robots are the hard way. Credit to him though as he now admits robots are not as good as he thought and more humans are needed in his production factories. You would have thought he had more intellect to understand a robots limitation, guess he is not too smart either.

    Another video showing how crap robots/programmers are. Completely useless in the real world, just like Tesla's "auto pilot".
