Robots Are Delivering Sushi to Hungry Japanese Customers This August

first_img These days, robots are doing everything. They’re cleaning our floors, automating healthcare, and delivering sushi. Yeah, you read that right. They can deliver tasty morsels of tender seafood and rice to your doorstep. At least, they will be in Japan. Tokyo robotics company ZMP is partnering up with the Ride On Express food delivery service to bring hungry Japanese residents sushi with CarriRo robots.These adorable little robots are bright red and about three feet tall. They can avoid pedestrians and other obstacles thanks to built in sensors, and they can even carry enough food for about 60 people. Yes, 60 people. That’s a whole lotta sushi. They move at about 4 miles an hour, but they’re absolutely adorable robots that can bring you sushi. You don’t have to do anything at all, and this cute little red guy is bringing you food. This is truly the future.Just look at its glossy exterior, and its tiny mouth that kind of resembles a bird’s beak. It just wants to be your friend and help you eat a bunch of delicious food. Nothing to be ashamed of.The robots will start rolling out in Japan this August with parks and private roads being tested first. If it works as planned and there are no crazy robots throwing sushi at people (or people harassing the robots) then lucky Japanese citizens could well see these tiny red dudes in the near future. I’m just over here waiting for my turn in the west. Sushi robots, people. Pronto.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
