The robots look like coolers on wheels and they don’t quite have names yet but the company is called Starship.
“Starship Technologies have created the world’s first commercially available autonomous delivery robot,” said Starship’s Henry Harris-Burland.
Harris-Burland flew in from London to show Austin what the robots can do.
“We came to Austin because it’s common sense, it’s obvious. Austin is a very forward-thinking, tech-embracing, innovative city,” Harris-Burland said.
The company is hoping to come back and test them out here.
They’re looking at three different markets: package delivery, grocery delivery and restaurant delivery. So these guys might show up at your door bearing pepperoni pizza.
“You’d order something as usual online. You’d be offered Starship delivery in the checkout area. And then you’d be notified through your mobile phone when your parcel was ready for delivery. The power is then in your hands,” Harris-Burland said.
