Considering how much trouble NASA had with things like this moving themselves, I don't think you have much to worry about yet.
They almost look like mini cylons. Strangely, They didn't mention anything about the automated self defense turrets that are built in to ward off would-be thieves.
They also look like they would work really well in snow and ice....
Ahem. Give it up with the robots.
There is a valid thought here.
Sudden rainstorm, the item now gets soaked unless these things are able to stop and put it in a plastic bag.
Wonder how many folks know what Cylons are, or dalics for that matter.
Ask the "Doctor".
I've seen some guy on these forums with a Robert T.S. picture as his avatar. An obscure character from ninja gaiden 2 for the NES.
I just had a flashback to playing Castlevania and Contra.
All these ideas don't seem effective. Since we would have to re-do our air/road infrastructure. Those things would clog up bike lanes/roadways just like too many drones in the air would be annoying. The cities wouldn't wanna pay a ton of money to re-do everything for certain companies without a big payout.
I do have a decent idea to kill our job that wouldn't take up much air/road space. But i don't want to post it since i don't want to kill my job.
Gates. Doors. Stairs. Elevators. Dogs. Snow. Ice. Mud.
I'm so worried I can't sleep at night.
Nothing to see here. Move along...
Even if they were somehow made "smart" enough to navigate all the obstacles we face on a daily basis, the problem of battery power is insurmountable. The most radically advanced battery technology we have today is still many generations behind what would be necessary to make robots of any kind a viable delivery system. Look at the size and weight of the battery pack on a forklift that moves pallets around in a flat warehouse and then try to imagine that amount of power being available to robots or a drone that might have to travel many miles to deliver a single package. The technology for such a battery simply isnt there.
By the time robots and drones replace UPS drivers your grandchildren will be dead and gone. I'm more worried that the sun will burn out in about 5 billion years...what then??
That, sir, is the Jedi power I covet the most.
The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded, aka management.
