Domino’s is at the forefront of pizza innovation: It’s stuffed crusts with hot dogs, created an addicting tablet game where you (surprise!) make virtual pizza, and now it’s unveiling a robot that’ll deliver a medium two-topping pie to your door. The Domino’s Robotics Unit (DRU for short) looks like a gussied-up R2-D2 with a warming drawer. And it’s apparently the real deal: Domino’s worked with a robotics company that usually develops equipment for the army.
To mark this momentous occasion of human ingenuity, the company released a three-minute video that resembles a trailer for an action movie.
Domino’s is doing test runs over the next six months in Australia, but it will likely be a couple of years before we see DRU cruising the streets (er, sidewalks). Delivery has entered the space age—if only the pizza was also out of this world.
