Amazon Reveals the Robots at the Heart of Its Epic Cyber Monday Operation @ WIRED.

In early 2012, Amazon spent $775 million to acquire Kiva Systems, a Massachusetts-based startup that makes warehouse robots and software to automate the most mundane parts of filling online orders. For the past two years, the world’s largest online retailer has kept mostly quiet about how it was using the Kiva robots in its own operations. But on Sunday, the day before the high point of the internet retail year, Amazon opened its doors to show off the droids that are taking its warehouses to the next level of consumer gratification.
