CNN News - (CNN) - Walmart is known for unique shoppers in the aisles, but this time, robots are taking the spotlight.
The retailer is using robots to do tasks like scan for out-of-stock items, incorrect prices, and missing labels.
Right now, Walmart is testing robots in a couple of stores in Arkansas and California.

Walmart CTO Jeremy King told Reuters the robots are more efficient and quicker than human employees.
According to Reuters, Wal-Mart has also been testing drones for home delivery, curbside pickup and checking warehouse inventories.
