Apparently, Ford wants to make your life more convenient and scare the crap out of you at the same time with their package delivery robots that fold up inside autonomous vehicles. Digit is the new teal bot whose feet look like non-threatening versions of The Terminator’s Skynet T-800. The Detroit carmaker has partnered with Agility Robotics to develop this solution for “last mile delivery”, otherwise known as getting packages directly to your door. The impetus behind this research is the sheer volume of package deliveries, up substantially due to the increase of online sales. Digit can carry up to 40 pounds, walk stairs, negotiate obstacles, and probably frighten your otherwise courageous dog. What’s more, it can communicate with the transport vehicle and even the cloud for optimal delivery logistics to minimize complications. This just might be the future of package delivery, but it could very well be overkill just so you can get your Viagra refills.
