Ever wished those cool droids from Star Wars existed? Either a multi-functional R2-D2 to fix, support and get stuff for you, or better still, the spherical autonomous robot called BB-8 to roll all your chores at one go? Look no further!

A Boston company believes it has built something similar (or better) that would do most carrying job and it’s also rechargeable. “Gita” is an autonomous cargo carrier bot designed by Piaggio Fast Forward (PFF) to be a personal assistant robot. A real robot that’s designed to be independent even when sent to grocery shop, it can also locate home by itself. It also might help walk the dogs and carry heavy materials.

One great application already in place for this cool invention is helping with mail and parcels delivery. With Gita doing the heavy lifting, the mailman can reach more houses quicker. The smart technology runs with vertical rotating axial wheels, which means that the storage compartments are always upright as the wheels rotate, protecting fragile contents. Good news is that they aren’t concept images rather real products as they have already been launched and are available for purchase. What do you think? Isn’t the future of modern technology exciting already?
