This video came up in a Private Conversation I was having with @Grands recently. The level of sophistication and precision of this production line is amazing to me. Thinking about all of the design work and experimentation and fabrication work and optimization that went into it....

Yeah. Gads, what a BUNCH of programming / re-programing, rinse and repeat, but it looks like they got it right

Yup. Very impressive. Also, I'm sure the reason why a new car costs $20K instead of$100K.

But the next step is so obvious. Give the machines a list of the tasks to be accomplished, and they will write their own scripts for the details of the motion. Next step after that, give it a list of materials and the software will figure out it's own list of tasks to be accomplishes, and the tools needed to do the job. Next step after that, integrated design of the product and the factory to make the product.

Automation is unstoppable.
