TECH TRANSPORTATION DRONES Robots will deliver food and drinks to George Mason University students

European startup Starship Technologies is bringing its six-wheeled delivery robots to a college campus in Virginia. The company announced Monday that George Mason University will allow students to use their meal plans to have select food and drink orders delivered by the robots.

Starship says it’s providing George Mason with at least 25 robots, and orders from Blaze Pizza, Starbucks, and Dunkin’ will be available at the start. More will be added in the “coming weeks,” and each order will cost $1.99 extra.

The delivery bots can carry up to 20 pounds worth of goods, and they’ve been tested in various cities around the world over the last few years, often in partnership with services like DoorDash or Postmates. Starship’s robots are able to drive themselves on sidewalks, over curbs, and operate in rain or snow and at night, according to the startup. They navigate around people and other objects thanks to cameras embedded around the robot’s exterior.

So how does this work in rain, snow, and ice? The later, with poor plowing around on many sidewalks and trails.

“Freshman 20” is now “college senior 60.”
Gone are the days of sexy college women. Tons of hover rounds crowding the sidewalks!
Mason made their fields turf bc if they didn’t, the fat cows would graze all day!
Mason was a good school until 1974-1975...
Now it sucks

it is false advertising. they are setting those kids up for failure - assuming they stay in this area. perhaps if they migrate to texas and beat a 10,000,000 : 1 curve they will make it, in that "field".

(1) your not the manufacturer. your a buyer of "a luxury no return item"

(2) your loosing your job and giving it abroad

(3) they are getting the contract.

(4) if you are writing (developer code) that's 1,000x worse - your helping them do it!
