George Mason Student Excited To Get Drunk, Destroy New Food Delivery Robot

According to Tech Crunch:

Starship, an autonomous delivery robot startup, is deploying its first batch of robots as part of a commercial service. Starting today, Starship will begin delivering food to the 40,000 students, faculty and staff at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. in partnership with Sodexo, a food and facilities management company.

Starship says the deliveries take 15 minutes or less, on average, depending on which items the customer ordered and where they’re located on campus. Each robot can carry up to 20 pounds of food.

At launch, there will be 25 bots roaming around campus delivering food from Blaze Pizza, Starbucks, Dunkin’ and other food retailers. Each on-demand delivery will cost $1.99.

According to a text from Alpha Beta brother Thad McBrycerson, who I absolutely did not make up,

“I’m excited to get drunk & destroy one of those new food delivery robots, LOL.”

Two in the morning & this thing rolls up to the party as you finish off your third Hurricane 40oz…

Is it rolling back to Blaze Pizza on all four wheels? Is that adorable little reflective flag still flying high? You couldn’t leave the neighbor’s pumpkins alone at Halloween.. you can control yourself around a funky snack mobile?

Thinking of myself back in the day, I wouldn’t mess with it because I’d be so grateful it brought me nuggets (& I’m scared of authority)… but I would probably put something (that only I thought was) funny inside it for the return trip.

Surprise, here’s 30 pinecones from our patio & an old pizza crust, IDIOTS!

Anyways, I’m going to die alone and, hey, here’s a post of Starship in action:

They’ve been on the move for a few years now in other spots around the world, and I’m sure they’ll hit some snags (cc: Thad McBrycerson 7 Natty’s deep) along the way as they continue to test this thing out, but it’s a pretty cool concept & it’s probably the way things are heading.

And maybe I’m just being so skeptical for other, deeper reasons…

Who knows? Godspeed little food robots, Godspeed.
