Store Robot Reduces Audit Labor, Costs
A ROBOT that eliminates at one fell swoop all cash registers, sales, audits, inventories and much other office routine work is now being manufactured for use in large department stores.
The robot, shown in operation in the photo above, consists of a number of units joined in series and operated by electricity. The system eliminates all manual labor and cuts costs of audits in half, according to the inventor, Prof. A. L. Woodruff, who worked two years on the device.
