"This is the future right here," said Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon.
He watched as FedEx's new SameDay distributor continued through sand, rocks, water, and a step.
"That's unbelievable," Fallon said in a potentially real reaction to the bot that delivered him a pizza on Tuesday night.
FedEx announced on Wednesday that it has worked with companies such as AutoZone, Lowe's, Pizza Hut, Target, Walgreens and Walmart on food, groceries, parts, supplies and more as part of a "last mile" ̵
The bot was designed with DEKA, whose founder founded the invention of the Segway. The robot has cameras, LiDAR sensors like an autonomous vehicle and is battery operated. The bot learns to avoid obstacles, stay on its way, and follow street signs. The bot will be tested this summer in Memphis, Tennessee.
FedEx hopes to deliver the Electric-Bot in the 1,900 cities where FedEx already offers SameDay City. Instead of human messengers hauling their packages, it is this bot.
