Some firms are taking contactless supply to new extremes.
Startups Piestro (robot-powered pizza merchandising machines) and Kiwibot (meals supply robots) simply introduced a new collaboration the place clients may doubtlessly order a pie and have it delivered with out ever speaking with and even seeing one other human being.
As The Spoon notes, the soon-to-market Piestro “will characteristic an built-in mechanism that enables Kiwibots to pluck these pizzas from the machine and cart them on to your door.”
A press launch sheds extra gentle on how the delivery would work. “Via an in-app order and buy, clients can choose their most popular pizza design. The order is registered with Kiwibot and a bot is deployed to a Piestro location, the place the pizza has been made by automation and timed to dispense upon arrive for optimum freshness and high quality. Kiwibot picks up the pizza and delivers on to the customers, creating a absolutely contactless expertise from the time your pizza is made, to the second in hand.”
Sadly, there isn’t a timetable for our new robotic pizza future. Piestro is within the midst of a crowdfunded investment campaign; Kiwibot, in the meantime, has began test programs for their robotic deliveries, most lately on the College of Denver.
Some benefits to this potential partnership: The pizza could be cooked in simply three minutes, each the cooking and supply may doubtlessly be a 24/7 enterprise and, after the preliminary machine funding, value per pie can be radically diminished.
