How many times a week do you use your lunch break to go to the same sub-par sandwich shop around the corner? But what if the better sandwich shop that’s just too far away from your office brought their food to you immediately, without the need for a third-party delivery driver?
Soon, tiny robots could bring whatever you want, straight to you, on demand.
According to Futurism, “San Francisco-based Starship Technologies wants to remove any human interaction, at least from the process of buying lunch. The company is expanding its fleet of autonomous robots to include tiny robots that deliver your lunch for you.”
Right now, these Starship Technologies robots are working exclusively within the Intuit corporate campus. But, they’re planning to launch them at more than 1,000 colleges and workplaces by the end of the year, including 20 in Europe.
Beyond just lunch, instant drone delivery of whatever you want has been on everyone’s lips for a while now, particularly in regards to Amazon’s instant delivery. The ability to immediately summon any meal or item with the help of technology would be a major convenience for people everywhere.
