An Overwhelming number of robots
Technology News: Japan's Robot Developers Go Linux

From the article:If Honda believes that robots will become its most important business, and if robots overtake the PC industry, that means that there will be more robots than there are cars or PCs today. Most of those robots will be taking jobs from people.

Over time, the economy may adjust to this new reality. But short-term, it is going to mean a lot of unemployment in every imaginable profession. Everyone from checkout clerks and customer service reps to teachers, doctors, nurses and construction workers will be out of their jobs and on the streets. See Robotic Nation for details.
