But Will The Chinese Build a [Second] Wall So The Robots Don't Steal Their Jobs?

Foxconn is reportedly going to "hire" A MILLION robots in the next three years.  That wasn't hyperbole, people.

For those of you who don't know, Foxconn is a tech company that makes electronics for the likes of Apple, Acer, Dell, Nintendo, and, oh, anyone else you can think of. They have factories all over the world, although most are located in China.
