 ROBOTS behind the bar, radio-controlled luggage tracking, and the fastest Internet at sea – it sounds like something from a sci-fi film.

But tech-savvy holidaymakers will be able to experience the “bionic bar” aboard the new Quantum of the Seas and Southampton-based Anthem of the Seas ships next year.

Daily Echo:

It will be the first bar in the world where guests can order drinks via computer tablets, then watch the automated bartenders mix and deliver their cocktails of choice.

The aim is to make passengers feel like they are stepping into the future.

Crew members will have apps to better track guests’ tastes and preferences, and there is a higher level of sustainability.

Anthem of the Seas debuts in Southampton in April 2015 and will offer an indoor sports and entertainment complex, including bumper cars, as well as the cruise line’s largest rooms.

Daily Echo:

Stuart Leven, Royal Caribbean International managing director, said: “Guests onboard our new Quantum-class ships will be forgiven for thinking they’ve been transported to the future when they see first-hand all of the incredible technological advancements that have seamlessly been incorporated into the ship. The new technologies make things possible at sea that could never have been done before.”

The ships will also house a troupe of six roboscreens, which stage surprise performances during cruises.

Daily Echo:

Mr Leven added: “The robot bartenders, luggage tracking devices and roboscreens, among others, are complete game-changers for the industry and we’re confident that guests will be blown away when they step on board.”

So, replacing a staffed bar with a vending machine.

Millions of jobs will gradually disappear over the next few years. More and more shops are becoming self-service, as are banks. Government and council offices are shrinking as people are forced to do everything online. In London there are driverless trains and in 4 years the first driverless cars are due to be trialled here.

Vending machines can't make judgements on how much alcohol people can consume. Something a real person has to do under conditions of a licence.

Just a small number of people world wide, that is all, and they are not interesting in sharing.
What you going to do when they come to you and say your not needed any more because we now have some thing to take your place that can work 24 hours day with a break and they don't need wages. and you can't get a new because there are none.
And yes programs are all ready out there that can design and build with out human being involved, your next stage of evolution as all ready started the 3D printer that is able to build objects.
You need to can it, your not amune and start thinking look at where its all taken us, you will be obsoslete your self sooner or later.
You need to stop thinking about your self and think of others, it will be others that will help you end

Obviously these machines build themselves then, human intervention is not required. Scary stuff.
Millions of jobs will gradually disappear over the next few years. More and more shops are becoming self-service, as are banks. Government and council offices are shrinking as people are forced to do everything online. In London there are driverless trains and in 4 years the first driverless cars are due to be trialled here.
Then we evolve and adapt to new jobs and occupations. As well as some jobs bcoming redundent due to new technology, many more are being created because of it.
There will never be enough jobs creates to cover for the lost of job for every 1 job created any thing between 5 to 1000 jobs are lost, Coming to the office soon is a computor program that will be able to do all the office work, planes can operate with out any one at the controlls all ready, Ships to will be able to operate by computer.
All this is not to the benefit of the majority, it will only benefit the few
Oh and Shoong
The Industral revolution created more jobs, thats why kids was being used to work in the mills,
As machines can't build them selfs, Your wrong Shoong as all ways, you all ready got to that stage machines are able to build other machines, they are call Robots and its a self taught computor that tells the robot what to do is all ready in place in car manufactory as well as other places like bulding your mobile phone and/or computor.
Oh do can it you Luddite.

Perhaps you can remind us a couple of years ago who said that the industry was dying and only had a few years of life left in it..?

You fear progress and change, the very things that the human race is good at.

It's funny that you may think I may become obsolete one day. I will never allow that to happen because I am adaptable - the very quality that has meant the human race has survived.

Get any rigging business lately? Because you refuse to adapt to the world changing around you, you have become obsolete itself.

Why not try to educate yourself in some new skills so you can be useful to the greater good you are apparently so dedicated to?

You have allowed yourself to become obsolete because the political doctrine you run your life by is obsolete itself.

You are useless.

I do not fear progress at all, what is wrong with it how its applied greed for the few and no sharing.
Remember these mortal words
first they came for unionist, I did noting I was not a union person
then they came for the socialist, i did noting because i was not a socilaist
they went for the communist, i did nothing i was not a communist
then they came for the jews, i did nothing i was not a jew
they then came for me, and there was no one there to help me.

These words applied now as they did in WWII how people was arrested and murdered, But it jobs that are going but the people are not, less and less jobs, your turn to come and when it do there be no one there to give you a job because jobs will be very few and all taken.

Think about it stop thinking about your self and your i all right jack it will be your down fall in the end
