Buddy MobilityWhen you think about robots stealing jobs, you think about AI, about new technology that supercedes the bounds of humanity.
But the Norwegian postal service, #Posten, has just signed a partnership with a San Francisco startup called Buddy Mobility to provide a robot that literally delivers your mail.
According to Buddy Mobility's official webpage, this partnership will provide #Posten with "cost savings to offset revenue losses" and will "dramatically" decrease mail volumes.
The robots won't deliver mail directly to your house, and will instead send recipients a notification through an app.
You can walk up, pick up your mail and the #Posten robot will be on its merry way, back to the post office for a recharge.
