My first sighting: delivery robot!





Many of you have probably seen this before. But this was the first time for me!

While I was shooting a driving video in Hollywood yesterday, I saw this little guy coming from the left, crossing the street. For some reason, my brain made me think it was a shopping cart (pushed by no one), then a wheelchair (with no one on it). Before I realized what it was.

Again, I had heard about these many times but had never seen one in person.



A very small event, but quite a big deal actually seeing one. Unimaginable just a few years ago...



Have you ever seen one? Or used one??

That's so cool! Hopefully the thing lasts in LA. I just think of that hitchhiking robot that survived a couple countries but was destroyed within a couple weeks after arriving in the US. ^-^

Have seen it. Kind of cute, goofy, and impractical. It is better suited for controlled environments like University campuses. When drones are approved or other types of delivery robots, they will disappear.
