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.

Digit will help self driving cars accomplish the final step in the delivery process that had been difficult to achieve.

A video of Digit in action shows the robot folded up in the back of a vehicle.  When it's ready for deployment, the trunk of the vehicle opens and Digit unfolds.  Click on the above link for more.
