It's a minor setback until haptic gloves and AR goggles are used.

I don't recall which TV channel I saw the demo on, but they were showing something like this where the AR goggles let a cruise ship helmsman "see thorough" the bridge and ship to see where the dock was at, and the haptic gloves let him control engine, rudder, and side thrusters.

Alexa: "After these missiles are fired, you will be down to 20% capacity. Would you like to order through your Prime Account?"
