Meet the Amazon Robots That Are Processing Your Cyber Monday Orders
Jaws dropped last Cyber Monday, when customers rushed to order 500 items per second on Amazon.
But this year is bringing an even bigger turnout, reports Fox Business’ Jo Ling Kent.
“Amazon is already breaking its own records,” she said today from one of the company’s fulfillment centers in Robbinsville, New Jersey.

So just how does one of the world’s largest retailers cope with the flurry of online orders?
Meet some of Amazon’s 30,000 robots.
These bright yellow bots bring the items to humans who sort them, pack them into boxes and send them onto a 14-mile-long conveyor belt.
