Amazon patent on robot that throws things in boxes

posted by Ditch - 

Is there anything Amazon doesn't want to dominate?  It appears that they now want to be the exclusive providers of robotic  dwarf tossing. Bet you didn't see that one coming.   

Amazon was just granted a new patent for a robotic arm that throws  things into boxes. And in a bunch of the example drawings they used,  they showed the robot flinging a dwarf across a room into a box. 

As you can imagine the Little People of America organization  is not happy about it. Quote, "Any time that 'tossing' and 'dwarf' are  put together, it's a real concern for us. It really opens up the  possibility of mocking and dehumanizing little people."

Amazon says they're taking it out of context. They say they just used  a dwarf figurine as an example of a product that the robot arm could  throw into a box.
