Food Delivery Robots Will Soon Take To London’s Streets…

Robots. Food. Is this amazing or have we reached a whole new level of laziness? Either way, the take-away delivery service Just Eat has been building an army of self-driving mini-bots that use GPS navigation, cameras and sensors to deliver food to Londoner’s doors. These little robots travel at a speedy 4mph and… wait what?… sorry – these little robots travel at a modest 4mph which is kinda fitting considering they sort of look like tortoises anyway (if you use your imagination a little). Hopefully there’s a heater inside these little guys considering their slow speed – no one likes a cold korma.

These bots are censor controlled and send alerts to a control room if lifted off the ground to prevent thieves – we doubt however that this will stop startled Londoners booting one into the Thames at an attempt of stopping a Robot invasion.

If you’re worried about someone pinching your chips as they travel on the back of this tortoise – I mean robot! – the robots will be locked and need a code (given to the customer upon order) to access the treasures inside. An additional win for the customer – this new method of delivery will be a lot cheaper than usual delivery costing £1 across a 3 mile radius – pretty sweet!

We’d like to welcome our robot overlords and wish them luck as they weave their way through busy London and join the hectic commute.
