Robots Pulling Kids On Rickshaws [Video]

Posted Sep 1, 2009

At the SM City Marikina mall in the Philippines, this video was captured of robots pulling rickshaws. The robots look like real children and they are actually pulling real children in the rickshaws. Something seems wrong about this video, but I don’t know quite how to describe it. Rickshaw drivers generally don’t make much money, but just the thought of robots replacing that line of work just sounds disturbing.
