A new Starship robot that delivers straight to your door
A new robot has developed by one of the original founders of Skype, which could help lessen the delivery charges – and perhaps making it free in the future.
Starship reaches autonomously to the customer’s doorway and then texts an alert message to declare its coming. The low speed robot is intended to drive for a few miles nearby the local hubs or a shop and can carry only small amount of loads.
The company hopes to launch pilot services in the UK next year and is currently testing its prototypes.
