Domino's Has Pizza Robots and They Are More Magical Than You Could Imagine
This is how my episode of "My 600-lb Life" will go: "It all started with a pizza robot."
We all know we're living in the damn future; we've got lots of cool technology at our fingertips that would make our ancestors jealous (and possibly cringe). This week, Domino's proved it by unleashing a beautiful new technology.
This is DRU: Domino Robotic Unit. Designed by an Australian military technology company for Domino's New Zealand, it's an artificial intelligence-powered robot that will deliver piping hot pizzas and other Domino's goodies right to your door. (Lucky New Zealanders!) And it looks like an adorable train/car/WALL-E mashup.
Introverts around the world jumped for joy at the idea of ordering delivery without having to interact with people.
For years, we've put up with a system that is flawed by human error. Never again will you have to deal with a mildly irritating delivery person.
Others were excited that Domino's plans to make this robot technology "an integral part of the Domino's family," and that the bots are already being tested in Australia, Belgium, Germany, Holland, Japan, New Zealand, and France.
But why stop at pizza? I'm excited by the UNLIMITED possibilities of future food orders, both pizza and non-, delivered without shade or judgment!
In the future, it may be possible to order a ridiculous amount of pancakes without the accompanying side of SHADE.
Think about it: You would get Chipotle without being reminded that guac is extra; which I know, SUSAN. I'm here EVERY DAY. Except, not anymore, 'cause now I got a fancy robot meeting my Chipotle needs.
You could get McDonald's without having to go through the drive-thru, pretending all this extra food is for your "kids." I don't need to explain to a robot why I need two McNuggets and a Double Quarter Pounder with cheese.
Also, freaking cake. Do you know what it's like to buy cake for yourself and have people judgmentally WATCH YOU? In the future, I'm banking on the possibility of getting cake delivered all day, every day, judgement-free.
Oh, you wanna get fancy and order some bruschetta? It comes with a free side of impressive technological advances.
Ridiculous amounts of ice cream from a robot who's been to your house six times today and isn't AT ALL concerned about your life choices:
Gone are the days of slaving over a hot stove in an attempt to kid yourself that your life has some sort of order and discipline to it.
Get excited, because this fancy new technology means we are one step away from this cool microwave.
But also one step closer to this future:
