Tired of driving to the nearest Domino’s to pick up your pizza pie? Tired of dealing with an outdated human delivery driver? You’re in luck — Domino’s is delivering by robot in New Zealand so you never have to leave your home or deal with humans ever again.
DRU (short for Domino’s Robotic Unit) was developed in Australia and can carry 10 pizzas at a time. The delivery bot, who could easily be cast as WALL-E and EVA’s child in a Disney/Pixar sequel, gets around using four wheels and a special motion sensor to keep clear of obstacles. Anyone with diabolical plans to steal your pie is thwarted by the unique code system used to unlock customer’s compartments.
Would you be more likely to order from Domino’s if a robot brought you your pizza? How much would you tip the robot? Let us know in the comments below!
