Robomart is a SF based company building self-driving stores, which allow fresh produce and goods to come directly to your doorstep.
The benefits to robotic delivery is two fold – one they’re cheaper to operate than traditional delivery drivers, and two they arrive at your location much faster because they don’t need to pick-up food, it’s already contained in the delivery vehicle itself.
This allows end-users to tap a button on their phone, and within a few minutes they’re outside picking out what food they’d like.
Similar to amazon’s , Robomart will utilize cameras and sensors to know what product you’ve removed, and charge that to your account.
Robomart aims to be the Boeing of the self-driving vehicle space, leasing their units out to companies looking to add instant delivery to their product offering.
At SXSW 2018, an Austin Texas-based startup called ICON unveiled its plan to print a 650-square-foot house. According to The Verge, which earlier reported on ICON’s concept, the 3D-printed house would be made of cement and take up to one day to be printed by large 3D robots. Best of all, the homes would cost just $10,000. And ICON hopes that eventually, it can bring the cost of homes down to $4,000.
According to the report, ICON is focused on bringing affordable housing to the estimated 1.2 billion people around the world who do not have adequate shelter. The company will begin its mission in El Salvador, where it plans to build 100 of its houses sometime in 2019. The company hopes to bring its housing to move countries in the future.
