      Amazon called, and they want 200,000 of those robots. Imagine 'Roger Roger, Jeff' in unison.

      Are humans delivery drivers really that expensive?
      As a person with a 401K, I'm all about good Wall Street performance, but if it comes at the expense of human jobs, what's the point?

      There are days, however, where I'd like to have one of these droids walk my dog.
      Speaking of dogs, it would seem like this tech really spells the end for seeing-eye dogs.
      A GPS equipped "walker-bot" could probably do the dog's job (and other tasks) so much better.

      Boy that robot sure is slow--a human UPS driver would probably deliver twice as many packages in the time it took that robot.

      That robots arm pounding fist at the end looked about as real as Toonces the Cat drinking tequila shots.

      I like the color. Id like to see how the robot does on ice, in rain, encounters steps, or has to go through the hood.

      If a tech company can try to build cars, why can't a car/truck company work itself into mobility tech?
