Your Future Delivery Person Could Be A Robot Dog

Could your future delivery person, not be a person at all but instead a robot dog, if the German automotive firm Continental certainly thinks so.

The firm is showing off what their vision for the future could be at CES this year — stating that in the future a self-driving delivery truck could stop in your neighbourhood and many robot dogs with packages strapped to their backs would jump out and proceed to drop off the boxes at the appropriate doors nearby.

We've seen robots similar to this from Boston Dynamics in the past, but the idea of these robots delivering packages to my doorstep in the future is a bit concerning, though not as disturbing as a full-blown humanoid robot.
