Both Google and Amazon are testing out drones for deliveries and now a company called Starship is looking to use a robot to make deliveries.
The Starship Robot is the creation of former Skype co-founders and thgeir new company Starship Technologies.
The company plans to launch a small fleet of their Starship Robot and use them to make deliveries, the robot is designed to make local deliveries between 5 and 30 minutes, and deliveries will apparently cost between 10 and 15 times less than current methods.
“Our vision revolves around three zeroes – zero cost, zero waiting time and zero environmental impact. We want to do to local deliveries what Skype did to telecommunications.” said Ahti Heinla, a Skype co-founder and CEO at Starship Technologies.
The video below gives us a brief look at this new robot, it will be interesting to see what it is like in action.
The robots can travel at a speed of up to four miles per hour and they travel on pavements and sidewalks to deliver their parcels.
The company will start testing out these new delivery robots in the UK and US in early 2016, you can find out more details at the link below, as soon as we get some more information about this new delivery robot, we will let you guys know.
