Australia has given us a lot of things in the past AC/DC,the destination in “Finding Nemo”,Steve Irwin,and the terror of over sized insects.
But now they’re adding even more to their list as a robotics company has helped Domino’s Pizza in creating the first ever Autonomus Pizza Deliver Robot. Thanks to the people over at Marathon Targets,a company that specializes in robotic targets for live-fire training, Domino’s is now rolling out what they have named DRU (Domino’s Robotic Unit) in select Countries including France,The Netherlands,Germany,and Japan. Check out how DRU came to be.
Now I’m not saying that there’s much of a problem here, but some troubling scenarios come to mind when the words “robot” and “public” are ever in the same sentence together (mostly due to “Robocop“). Most other countries don’t really tip their delivery people,if DRU does come to America will he need an extra slot where I can insert singles? What happens if DRU is robbed along the way to a delivery,they say that the customer has to input a code to unlock DRU’s delivery chamber,but I’ve seen people do ridiculous things for just a slice of Pizza. Is DRU bulletproof? If DRU is bulletproof what will happen if DRU needs to be taken out because DRU has gone rogue?
While the future of Pizza delivery is something I think we’re all on the edge of our seats about,I hope they work out any of the kinks that may come with DRU.
