Following the company's announcement in August to implement one million robots in the next three years, Focus Taiwan has reported that Hon Hai, the manufacturer's parent company has concurred and decided to move forward with plans to build an "intelligent robotics kingdom" in the Central Taiwan Science Park.
Chairman Terry Gou signed a letter of intent with mayor Jason Hu last Saturday, confirming intentions to build a robot & automation equipkment production plant. Skynet the plant is predicted to make some serious money, with an estimated production-value boost of NT$120 billion (around about $4 billion) and the creation of 2,000 jobs. But the question remains as to how many of these are filled by the robots, and whether they could be programmed for evil. See a video of what's being implemented below.
