According to USA Today, get ready for a world where your next home delivery is made by a robot.
Auto giant Ford is teaming up with a robotics firm on a self driving delivery project that features a two legged robot carrying packages from the car to your front door.
The robot, named Digit, is made by Agility Robotics. It moves like a human and can lift packages weighing up to 40 pounds.
