Humanoid robots are now doing work of humans in Spanx warehouse

When you think of humanoid robots, you might think of an army of T-800s from “Terminator” or C-3PO from “Star Wars.” You probably don’t think of shapewear. But women’s clothing brand Spanx is using a robot to work in its Georgia warehouse — and this robot looks awfully human-like.

While it might not look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, its bipedal bots feature arms and legs and other features that help it navigate a warehouse. According to the company behind the robot, GXO Logistics, it’s built to “work in human spaces and can be easily adapted to various warehouse tasks through software updates.”

Standing at 5 feet 9 inches tall, the same height as the aforementioned C-3PO, and featuring the ability to lift 35 pounds, “Digit” is built to work in a warehouse. In fact, that’s what the humanoid robot was built for.
