Polite robots deliver food to hungry Missouri college students

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The futuristic world of “The Jetsons”, is not here yet, but students and faculty at Missouri State University are seeing the latest robotic tech as they walk on campus.

About the size of an ice chest, they are robots delivering food from eateries at the student union.

The robots take off on their own to their appointed rounds, where some people even greet them like they’re human.

They even talk as they travel.

Missouri State is one of only 25 universities in the country and the first in the state to have these robots.

The robots are owned by Starship Technologies out of San Francisco, co-founded by the same people who started Skype.

Customers access the service by using an app to look through the menus and drop a pin where they want the robot to meet them anywhere outside.
