Sure there were some conveyor belts, but...Quote: "The interesting part comes with the picking. Workers will physically pick up every item per order." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gmbs4AVkgoI am well aware, that Amazon purchased Kiva Systems, which makes automated warehouse robots, but at this point I have not seen any confirmation of widespread use of the robots by Amazon in their warehouses.
