Uber’s CEO says human-like robots will deliver pizza in self-driving cars in the not-so-distant future, and Uber itself hopes to lead the way.
At the World Government Summit in Dubai, Travis Kalanick said Uber, the ride-sharing start-up, is moving into robotics and is partnering with auto makers to create self-driving cars and bring them to market, CNBC reports.
These robots will be able to deliver to your door, even if you live in an upstairs apartment, Kalanick predicts. “Imagine now a car that is delivering food but doesn’t have a driver,” Kalanick is reported as saying. “How do you get the food? You could come down and get it, but if you have three kids … you want somebody to bring it up. And at some point there is going to be a humanoid that crawls up your stairs … and hands you your pizza.” read more: http://bit.ly/2kXzJ7i
