New Learner

I had heard about these beasties recently, just spotted one today. They are a robot delivery system at NAU (Northern Arizona University) which is currently learning the layout of the campus. SOOCP(straight out of cell phone)

A bust on the moonset shot, Bad weather and bed gravity!
Fascinating - can't help but worry about vandals or thieves, they look so defenceless!

I've heard of these, fascinating to see them, and shame about the moon shot

Oh wow, I've read about these, but never seen one.

Well - all I can say is that he is a very independent learner!!

What a cute little thing. We've got driverless "Waymo" cars all over Chandler.

OK...this is wild! Driverless cars, delivery robots...what is next?!? :)
March 21st, 2019  
A bit creepy...

I've never seen one, but they seem to be using them more and more.

Hmm. Interesting. Love your term "bed gravity"

@jernst1779 I wonder about these things when the students come back in full force. I can see the headline, 'package beastie taken out by bicyclist' -:) -:)
@joemuli Gotta love cell phones for so many things.
@henrir I think that the biggest problem is going to be dodging the humans who text while walking, knowing that they will never run into anything.
@haskar Totally agree. I would have to give them a name so when I saw it, I could 'greet' it.
@alannascanlon Spot on, I am so last century at heart.
@gardenfolk Remote control politicians?
@blueberry1222 I am not so sure about these things, wonder what their cold weather gear is going to look like? I'd like to see them with chains on when its icy.
@robz They are kinda cute but I am weary of them.
@golftragic My son told me about them and he says that he almost ran into one, I guess they are rather stealthy.
@shannejw I was frantically trying to snap my shot before the traffic light turned. It was just being a good little drone/robot and waiting its turn.
@fbailey Maybe it can learn to defend itself, karate or something :):):).

Wait for the legal tangle when someone falls over one and damages themselves.

You got bed gravity? Me too.. it's really got me in its grip! I look forward to driving my car at one of these things! Just because we can make them doesn't mean we should!

@yrhenwr Bed gravity is a common issue here, I blame it on the 7000 feet elevation. The students just being super lazy if they need to have the dinning hall deliver their carbs and sugar to them.

@golftragic They may be cute but a hazard in my opinion. I can see a file bot in an office but on campus, really?????
