Amazon-Scout-Robot-2

Everyone knows that Amazon is not-so-slowly taking over the world. While we’ve seen plenty of improvements to their core business of package delivery over the years, we never thought we’d see functional delivery robots so soon. Amazon Prime Air flying drone delivery is an interesting idea in concept, but the practicality was always in question. But a six-wheeled robot that travels at a walking pace down the sidewalk to deliver packages to your front door? It’s here, and it’s called Amazon Scout. The cute little blue robot looks like the lovechild of a Cylon robot and a cooler as imagined by artists at Disney or Pixar. Again, the important thing is that it’s actually built and being tested. Amazon has partnered with the Snohomish County community in Washington to start delivering packages with six Amazon Scout devices Monday through Friday during daylight hours. Even though we’ve seen the video of it working, we have so many questions. How many packages can it deliver? How often does it need to be restocked? Is this really feasible? And how long until there are hundreds of thousands of these things rolling around asserting dominance over the feeble humans they once delivered packages to?
