Robots are Cool!

Check this out: there's a design out there for a robotic package delivery system.

I learned about this proposal in an article in Wired: Robot Design Delivers Packages Through Sewers. The concept is called the Urban Mole and it's kind of like those tubes you use to send your deposits at the bank drive through (who am I kidding, we all use ATMs and online banking...but hopefully most of you get the picture). Oh, and it wouldn't be a vacuum, small carriers would run on rails. Still pretty darn cool!

Just think of the carbon savings from courier services and overnight mail alone!

Check out another idea for underground services: Recycling Sucks!
