These Cute SixWheeled Robots Are Now Making Deliveries in DC and CA

first_imgStay on target For now, they’ll only be running routes in two of DoorDash’s markets: in Washington D.C. and Redwood City, California. They won’t be on their own, either. During the testing phase, each Starship robot will be accompanied by a human.It’s about quality assurance, not having someone nearby who can hit a killswitch if one of the robots goes berserk and starts running over people’s toes.Starship is also teaming up with Postmates, the “revolutionary Urban Logistics platform” that’s been delivering virtually anything from any store or restaurant in its service area in 26 states for the past five years. There’s a robot invasion under way in the U.S. They’re not here to bring about the fall of humanity, though. They just want to bring you delicious food and parcels.Starship says its robots are ideally suited to a particular kind of delivery — one that’s not necessarily a great fit for humans. Their robots will stick to a two to three-mile radius, and they’ll handle smaller deliveries. That leaves their fleshy counterparts to handle longer-range and larger orders, on which they generally make better money.At least they do with DoorDash, the food delivery startup that’s partnered with Starship for these early Stateside tests with real-world restaurants and their customers. “These robots are good for the short, small orders that lots of dashers avoid,” company spokesman Eitan Bencuya told Quartz.It’s a safe bet that DoorDash has plenty of data to back that up. Those are still paying customers that need service, though, and Starship’s bots will happily pick up the slack.center_img Review: ‘Daemon X Machina’ Has Big Robots, Small Fun on Nintendo SwitchThis Robot Is Equal Parts Lawnmower and Snow Blower last_img read more

Rockstar Finally Releases a New Red Dead Redemption II Trailer

first_img It has been a very long time since Rockstar Games released a trailer for Red Dead Redemption II. Today, the company has finally revealed new footage of their highly anticipated game. This video spotlights the central character along with his band out outlaws. It also confirms Red Dead Redemption II is a prequel to its highly successful predecessor.The star of this particular trailer is a man named Arthur Morgan. Working for the Van Der Linde gang, Morgan is a ruthless outlaw who steals money from innocents while running from the law. If you’ve played Red Dead Redemption then you’ll recognize the Van Der Linde gang. This is the same crew protagonist John Marston associated with. In fact, the trailer ends with Morgan speaking with the outlaw leader, Dutch Van Der Linde. This is a man fans of the previous title will remember very well.In usual Rockstar fashion, this trailer is merely a tease. We know Red Dead Redemption II will feature a vast open world and some form of multiplayer. We also know it will feature seven outlaws (who are presumably part of the Van Der Linde gang). Outside of that, however, there isn’t much information to chew on. I have no doubt Rockstar will eventually release a trailer spotlighting game features. We’ll just have to wait a bit longer for that I suppose.Red Dead Redemption II was originally set to release this year. Rockstar has since pushed back the release date to Spring of 2018. Having the date moved to next year certainly stings, but if it makes for a better (and more stable) product then that’s perfectly acceptable. Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next trailer. Based off everything we’ve seen so far, it looks like Rockstar is set to deliver something special.Red Dead Redemption II will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
