FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) A fleet of high-tech robots has deployed at a northern Virginia university for the noble purpose of delivering pizza, doughnuts and coffee on demand to students.
More than 25 knee-high, cooler-shaped robots began delivery duty Tuesday at George Mason University in Fairfax.
Ryan Tuohy, senior vice president for business development at San Francisco-based Starship Technologies, which makes the robots, said hundreds of delivery orders were placed on the services first day.
