Tech Insider take a look at Ford’s new human-like delivery robot. We’ve heard of delivery drones, self-driving delivery cars, but now we’re getting actual robots handing us our packages at the door! Amazing!

 

Ford teamed up with Agility Robotics to create the robot called Digit. It’s meant to walk as much like a human as possible and is deployed when the delivery car arrives at your address. Digit can navigate complicated terrain and can carry packages up to 20 kilograms. He walks like a human, and mimics the way that humans lift boxes and deliveries. He’s an impressive machine, we reckon he looks like something out of iRobot!

It’s not clear exactly when or if Digit will be rolled out for use, but it could be fairly soon, as the robot already looks like he could handle most challenges! We’ve got to say though, it would be quite an odd experience opening up your door to one of these robots! You might think you’ve stepped into a Terminator movie! Yikes!
