Amazon is likely to automate much of the process, the filing notes, with the cartridge connected to a network. It could "receive acoustic signals or other forms of instructions" as well as having the ability to send acoustic signals.

In the filing, Amazon states: “Because today’s online marketplace offers a wide variety of items to customers including – but not limited to, goods, services, products, media or information – fulfillment centers now include increasingly large and complex facilities with expansive capabilities and high technology accommodations for items and feature storage areas as large as one million square feet or more.”

LG brings its bezel-less display to the smaller and more affordable Q6

  LG brings its bezel-less display to the smaller and more affordable Q6 LG is bringing its impressive bezel-less smartphone display to a new mid-range Q6 handset. It's not the G6 mini that has been rumored, but the new Q6 has a similar display to the G6, with an 18:9 aspect ratio on a 5.5-inch panel with a 2160 x 1080 resolution. The Q6's display is smaller in size and resolution than the G6, and that makes the overall device smaller and dominated by the screen thanks to the small bezels.LG is launching three models of the Q6, and all of them include last year’s Snapdragon 435 processor.

Amazon has reportedly registered a patent for an underwater storage system. The patent filed by Amazon describes an underwater facility where goods will be stored in sealed containers. According to the patent , each container will have a unique “acoustic signal”.

Amazon has filed a patent that would see its depots submerged underwater in huge pools, with items summoned to the surface by acoustic vibrations. The proposal for Aquatic Storage Facilities is the latest in the line of futuristic patents filed by Amazon .

The company added that in order to prepare and ship an order, "a staff member or robot may be required to walk several thousand feet or even miles within a fulfillment center in order to retrieve the items. Where a customer submits multiple orders for items, the arduous task of picking, packaging and shipping ordered items must often be repeated for each and every order.”

In addition to the underwater storage facility, Amazon has filed several other patents in recent months. These include the aforementioned a drone tower, parachute shipping labels and the ability to block price comparisons in its stores, among several others.

The patent, if approved, is likely designed to help cut shipping costs, a topic that is on the top of Amazon's mind.

In the most recent quarter, it had fulfillment expenses of $4.7 billion, compared to $3.7 billion a year ago.
