Robots 1 – Humans 0, Canon Going all Robotic by 2015?

Robots 1 – Humans 0, Canon Going all Robotic by 2015?

Canon to let robots build you camera.
Canon has announced it will take all the humans off the production line for cameras, and replace them with robots. This switch could happen as early as 2015. Fear not though, the production line employees will move to other areas in the company and not be laid off.

No mention of lens manufacturing, I’m sure that sort of things does need human interaction.

No word on when Canon will replace the photographer with robots.
