If you’re scared robots are going to take all the jobs, this isn’t good news. Ford and Domino’s are teaming up to get rid of pizza delivery guys.
Instead of a guy knocking on your door and handing you pizza, you’ll have to walk to the street where a Ford Fusion has the goods. When the car arrives, you type in some info on the exterior touchscreen, and one of the rear windows rolls down, with the pizzas sitting on a shelf.
In the coming weeks, the lucky residents of Ann Arbor, which is in Michigan for all you who flunked high school geography, will be Ford’s and Domino’s guinea pigs. The companies will randomly select people to receive their pizza via a scary robot car, instead of a scary stranger. Then, they’ll see how customers react to the change.
The biggest drawback, as far as I can see, is that you’ll have to walk further than the front door to get your food. Most likely, that’s when your team will make an amazing third down conversion, or score on a crazy Hail Mary.
