Watch & Learn How Amazon’s Robots Ship Your Order

Like most retailers, the Holiday period is the busiest time of year for Amazon, who last year managed to sell a staggering 426 items per second last December. Preparing for this Christmas order extravaganza, the company has spent $775 million on Kiva Systems – little robots able to efficiently bring shelves of goods out of storage and carry them to employees. There are now over 15,000 of these robots being used across 10 of Amazon’s vast “fulfilment centres” (warehouses), helping to get your goods out to you as fast as possible. In fact, Amazon are so keen to stay ahead of the competition that it’s expected they will spend about as much as the entire economy of Mongolia (well over $10 billion) just shipping packages.

While this is great for Amazon, the company has come under fire for employing robots rather than humans, but Senior Vice President of Operations, Dave Clark, says the robots are “not about eliminating jobs” and rather just eliminate “the part that was not a fun part about picking.” Amazon employees about 80,000 additional holiday staff to help with picking and packing items.

Q&A: Geoffrey Guerrero, Founder of Katra Film Series

by Opal H. Bennett

I recently had the opportunity to experience a great evening of film in NYC’s L.E.S. (Lower East Side, for the unfamiliar). Filmmaker Geoffrey Guerrero invited Limité to attend his exclusive event, the Katra Film Series. Launched just three years ago with a handful of films, Katra has grown into a launching pad for emerging filmmakers who want their films seen by knowledgeable audiences. Katra is regularly attended by a wide variety of New York City’s film community. Its aim, according to Guerrero, is to provide a kind of film incubator for artists; the idea being, you could attend a Katra evening to screen your film, but you could also attend to find your next producing or acting collaborator, to meet a festival curator, or to discuss platform streams with a distributor.
