Many companies are using robot butts for testing. Ford being one of them, using sweaty robotic butt to test their car seats. Samsung tests phone durability in a dedicated testing facility, which has a butt-shaped robot that’s designed to sit on Samsung phones over and over again to test durability and bending.
Samsung, the largest business conglomerate in South Korea, began as a trucking company, and its founder Lee Byung-chul was a college dropout.
The company Samsung accounts for 15% of South Korea’s entire economy, and that South Koreans often live in Samsung owned apartment buildings, can get treatment from Samsung-owned medical centers, go to Samsung universities, and even end up at a Samsung funeral parlor when they die.
In March 2011, Korea’s anti-trust regulator went to a Samsung facility in Suwon to raid the building, looking for evidence of possible collusion between the company and wireless operators to fix the prices of mobile phones. Before investigators could get inside employees began eating documents.
Samsung has built a sentry gun which sits in the Demilitarised Zone between North and South Korea, which is hostile to anyone it senses who cannot provide an authorized access code.
