Domino’s Has a Pizza Delivery Robot

 |  |

Humans delivering your pizza? Forget that. Domino’s Pizza has an alternative to unreliable humans, with the unveiling of its autonomous delivery robot in Australia.

It goes by the name of DRU which stands for Domino’s Robotic Unit. Not Deadly Robotic Unit. Although it might be live up to that name if you are a poor tipper. Robots like tips too, in case you didn’t know. They have to buy replacement parts and stuff. Much like some delivery guys we already know, this is a 450-pound machine that travels up to 12.4 miles per hour to delivery your no longer hot pizza. Nah. It will be hot because this robot contains chilled and heated compartments for your food.

DRU uses GPS navigation to find its way to the delivery destination. It will maneuver around obstacles to get there and when it shows up at your door, all you have to do is type in a code to access your food. This is all assuming that bad guys haven’t hijacked your pizza along the way and beat the crap out of this robot. Because, free pizza.
