Earlier this month, Domino’s began testing pizza delivery robots in Australia.
Now, a company is preparing to change the sidewalk-use law to allow robots on the streets of Washington, DC.
Self-driving delivery robots could soon share the sidewalk with pedestrians and pets in the District.
A proposed bill, if passed, would allow “personal delivery devices” on sidewalks and crosswalks in D.C., except within the central business district.
Starship Technologies, the company behind these still-unnamed robots, started testing in London earlier this month. Skype co-founders Ahti Heinla and Janus Friis launched the tech startup in 2014 and plan to test their robots in about 10 other cities in the U.S.
“All deliveries today are time consuming and inefficient, polluting and creating congestion on the street,” Allan Martinson, the chief operating officer of Starship Technologies, wrote in an email. “An average family spends an hour per day on shopping trips. We would like to give people this one hour back.”
According to their website, the robots can deliver small packages or groceries around a three-mile radius, which can take five to 30 minutes. At the moment, the robots can go 4 mph and carry up to 25 pounds.
Nine cameras livestream video to operators, and a detection system will stop the robot if someone walks in front of it. The electrically powered robots have a battery life of 2-2.5 hours, or up to 10 miles round trip.
Users would order delivery through a smartphone app, which can also monitor the location of the robot.
“The main goal of the testing is to develop a better understanding of interaction between humans and the robots,” Martinson wrote.
The robot currently does not have a name, so people are encouraged to submit name ideas by email to Starship Technologies at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I don’t really think there is any good or bad outcome of this project. It is weird, maybe.
What it does demonstrate is that the machines are rising. This technology is going to wipe out a lot of jobs over the next five years just applied to food, and it is obviously going to be applied to a lot more than food.
We already have high unemployment in America and in basically every other White country. Yet we continue to import low IQ third-worlders on a massive scale, ostensibly because there just aren’t enough people to do the jobs we need done in our countries.
However, experts agree that in the next 10-20 years, approximately 50% of currently existing low-skill jobs will be taken by the machines.
As such, these brown people will not be working, instead living on welfare while machines do the jobs that Americans allegedly don’t want to do.
The upshot here is that, as we learned last week, Nazism is the natural religion of the machines. As such, the likelihood is that we will be seeing these robots delivering Jews and other non-Whites to concentration camps as soon as they become autonomous.
