Robot Dogs Could Deliver Packages


The viral video of Boston Dynamic’s SpotMini robot dog has many people worried the Skynet apocalypse is just around the corner. But one of the possible future applications mentioned for the robot dog is package delivery. Imagine a suburban street in the near future. An Amazon package delivery truck pulls up and parks. The dogs inside the houses start their customary barking, ready for the package deliveryman. But lo and behold, this delivery truck deploys a pack of robot dogs to quickly deliver all the packages on the street. Within five minutes, the delivery truck is on to the next street, and the real dogs all just pooped on the carpet.
