Platform is an interesting alternative take to Kiva robots. But the real takeaway is Robots-as-a-Service for the business model, so no money down to automate a warehouse for picking.

Ocado Technology – We’re putting the world’s retailers online using the cloud, robotics, AI, and IoT
Interesting warehouse design, effectively putting the aisle on top. But how are the crates handled in an individual silo when there is only a partial stack? The image suggests they are top anchored somehow, but if you have a dumb silo then it won't have electromechanical locks to keep the crate from falling. Some sort of twist post kind of lock?

Okay, this seems like an actual improvement over Amazon's Kiva whole shelf moving UGV's. Using the drones as both UGV's carrying single trays as well as elevator pickers to pull from dense/high tray stacks means you can multiplex tray picking from the stacks, rather than the typical separate elevator picker bot permanently mounted on the shelves.

Patent US9624034 - Aquatic storage facilities - Google Patents
Amazon patenting underwater storage of goods. Which isn't all that different from acoustic response buoys, like that DARPA upward falling payload program, or columbian drug runners...

Looks like a new alternative to Amazon's kiva robots.

New shrimp technology could speed up race to feed the world
Interesting, but this is largely shifting energy inputs for perceived production gains. This makes it look like a compact indoor shrimp production facility, with only electricity and fishmeal inputs, produces more. But where does the fishmeal come from, how was it made? Doing true cost analysis compared to traditional inland open pond shrimp farming using pond based algae as food for the shrimp, I wonder if it really is coming out ahead, and is not simply a tradeoff of greater energy expenditure to achieve greater density of end product production.

Amazon Buys Zappos, Gives Press the Boot - Amazon - Gawker
While Zappos may be attractive as a profitable company there may be more afoot. Zappos has an excellent robotically assisted warehouse system that is very flexible. It uses little saucer shaped vehicles that lift human height racks of merchandise by slipping underneath and pushing up, then bringing the whole rack to an individual packer/picker person who is assembling a shipment.
