Starship robot drops groceries at your doorstep for £1

starshipI don’t know about you, but I do enjoy grocery shopping. There is that sense of wonder when a new product is being promoted, not to mention a feeling of satisfaction knowing that you have done your homework beforehand, and the purchases which you made could not be found cheaper anywhere else in town, saving a few dollars here and there which will ultimately add up at the end of the day. Having said that, the one part that I do not enjoy about grocery shopping at all would be the lining up and payment bit, as weekends tend to see the supermarket packed with people. Apart from that, there is the issue of parking and carting all those groceries to your ride. Why not let a robot do that for you? Starship, a new self-driving robot intends to fill this role, as it delivers groceries to your doorstep in less than 30 minutes for £1.

Still, there is a growing market for drones, and it does not look as though this is going to slow down anytime soon. One thing is for sure though, the SKEYE Pico Drone is a whole lot smaller than the Parrot Night Jumping Drone, and TRNDlabs has done a pretty good job with it so far.
