FedEx reveals a package-delivering robot backed by Walmart, Target, and Lowe's that can climb stairs and carry hot food

So many people are getting into autonomous delivery bots you'd think Oprah was giving them away to the whole world. Pepsi, Amazon, Postmates (to name a few) are now joined by FedEx in the robot delivery game. Now, anything FedEx does when it comes to moving items from point A to point B will have some heft to it (at least when it comes to marketing). Robot delivery is no different, with the shipping giant having partnered with (read: gotten to comment in a press release) Walmart, Target, Lowe's, Pizza Hut, and Walgreens to make this white box on wheels. Supposedly hitting the streets of Memphis this summer, I picture a not too distant future where autonomous delivery robots are cutting each other off in the streets, beeping snarky comments at one another on the way to drop off their goods.
