US robot could shake up workplace

Makers of Baxter, a humanoid robot, claim their invention could forever change manufacturing.

    Manufacturing in the United States has been in decline for decades.

    Companies seeking cheaper labour and lower production costs have gone overseas, taking American jobs with them.

    But a small technology company in Boston thinks it has a way to bring some of those jobs back.

    And their proposal is straight out of science fiction.

    Al Jazeera’s Scott Heidler explains.
