  1. Time to raid those robots ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. The robot is white. Amazon is racist

  3. Expect vans driving around stealing those robots…..

  4. Send these robots to Baltimore or any democrat ruled cities to clean the place.

  5. Praying these things are stolen en masse by the many idiots living in my state.. also praying they are hit by cars at major intersections.

  6. Get all those vans and cars off the roads, the hell with the people who are loosing their job and their ability to pay their bills. Fox always has the most caring and classy anchors…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  7. I can already imagine the conversation at Amazon

    Sensible worker: Dude, these things are going to get grabbed and stolen all the time.

    SJW person who does no real work: That's racist, we have to put these out now, and if we ever even consider that criminals exist, we will be racist.

  8. You don't got a give e robot …. Nice English

  9. A robot takes up sidewalk space and oh yeah…….. umm they are racist!!!

  10. The problem I foresee is the snow

  11. A. Screw greedy Amazon AND Bezos (and Chris Wallace for that matter) B. What do you think will happen when some young โ€œkidsโ€ see this? Hijacking maybe? Yes. C. Our world will be FLOODED with leaking TOXIC BATTERIES from forget about computers & phones, but from greedy Uberโ€™s Bird scooters, Lyft scooters, Teslas, Electric skateboards, electric bikes, electric lawnmowers, ON ANS ON AND ON.. landfills and oceans FILLED WITH TOXIC, UN-RECYCLABLE BATTERIES.. then all the enviro-jerkoffs will say, hmmm maybe we have inadvertently created a huge problem๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ—ณ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€

  12. Criminals love stealing stuff especially easy targets.

  13. "You don't gotta…"
    Seriously?!?! What has happened to speaking proper English on television in what's supposed to be a professional setting?

  14. This is funny , these companies are self destructing their customer base , in the drive to save money by automating everything ,they are shrinking the group of people who will have jobs ins etc to buy the stuff they sell . Lol itโ€™s funny how humans race to the edge and jump off in the process of success an competition.
    I ask who is your biggest customer base ??? Your workers , itโ€™s in their best interest to have the company succeed . Give them more money and they will spend it on the hand that feeds , a self feeding system a feedback loop . Good luck

  15. This is hilarious, robots and drones will never replace delivery trucks

  16. that thing wont last 2 blocks in Newark, Paterson, Camden etc…

  17. …runs over toddler on Big Wheel.

  18. Can you imagine the number of dogs that will be chasing these things?

  19. It'll be like airborne drone delivery. Skeet shooting, with prizes.

  20. A friend sees them around Berkeley CA you get a text go outside put in the code and it opens get your milkshake go to the rally

  21. Hackers are going to love these๐Ÿคฃ

  22. I bet less than six months that it gets hacked

  23. Donโ€™t bring that in the hood………. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  24. Hey blondie, just wait till we have robot news anchors, you wonโ€™t sound so smug.

  25. Sickening how people are being taken out of the equation to save a couple dollars.

  26. In California we are getting packages stolen everyday so to have this is going to be worse people are going to be following them till they drop off then swooop

  27. I will let one run over my foot and sue Amazon…or maybe start hunting them for sport. This is stupid and I will never buy their stuff. NEVER BEZOS, NEVER!

  28. We need a $10,000/robot tax at the state level to fund unemployment..

  29. So, when I run one over with my car its the bots fault right?

  30. Look how quickly these things get robbed!

  31. Why aren't comments disabled for this, Fox? Epstein's "suicide" was just told to everyone with no comments allowed like the other propaganda outlets… It's almost like big players weren't just the Clinton's. Maybe a few of your buddies too. Truth always comes out. You'll answer to God.

  32. New passtime for kids, smash the robot.

  33. What happens's when all that are out there are robots ? When a disease begins it spreads and does the damage unaware a lot ! You talk about promoting layoffs. The public should begin by refusing to use Amazon anymore. They will get the hint when Jeff Bozo sees what it is like to take the money out of the pockets of the hard working American and put it in the all ready rich elites who do not care about the working class American !! This is what deceitful hidden liberalism looks like folks !! Start today by boycotting AMAZON !

  34. I think Amazon is blinded by these futuristic ideas and is not fully recognizing that they are not delivering to Utopia. If the hood rats are throwing water on the police, what does Amazon think they, oh–and the union "brothers," are going to do to those robots? I'm quite sure Kat isn't going to retrieve her General Tso Tofu from a robot with a ๐Ÿ’ฉ on top. These vehicles may work in places like Sun City and maybe secured communities and buildings, but we're not going to see these things rolling down the streets of average American cities. It's just not going to work.

  35. Kat. ๐Ÿ˜„ I get such a kick out of her.

  36. Letโ€™s call it a โ€œFailโ€ and move on. Would be less expensive for Amazon to not buy the fleet of robots and just open the doors to every Amazon warehouse for a weekend of looting.

  37. Big tech and other companies are always trying out new ideas knowing that they may never get implemented or are implemented in very limited capacity. It is often the exploration of these projects that have a specific objective that leads to discoveries and ideas that make other successful products and services that would not have been discovered otherwise. Just because somebody is working on delivery robots, drones and driver-less trucks, does not mean they are going to take over any significant portion of their respective markets for human jobs. Oftentimes, it is as much or more about promoting the company name as they get free publicity from reporters wanting to cover their "new crazy projects." Even if they never pan out, they get lots of coverage and are lifted in the public consciousness as "cutting-edge, high-tech companies" that deserve your business and investment dollars. And if something crazy they are working does pan out, all the better for them.

  38. Are they going to deliver via the sidewalk or street? Interesting?
