Where I grew up, the closest thing you could reasonably get to on foot was either a horse farm or the woods. Not that I was ever mad about those things, but I definitely envied the people I knew that just walk over to a friend’s house any time they wanted. Now that I live in a city, it may come as no surprise that one of the things I love the most about it is how walkable everything is. Any time I have the opportunity to take care of something on foot, you can bet I’ll be doing it: restaurants, coffees shops, the post office, banking, you name it. So when circumstances come up that require me to take a car, simply because of a weight issue, I get a little irritated. It’s exactly this problem that the Gita robot was made to solve.

Gita Cargo Robot Carrying Groceries

Gita Cargo Robot

The Gita is an all-terrain intelligent cargo vehicle designed to keep you hands free when you’re out and about. It can be set to follow you with the help of a wearable, or sent out to a predetermined waypoint (Chipotle pickup?). If you plan on taking it out for the day to the beach, or on a picnic, this shouldn’t be an issue either. The Gita has a battery that can last as long as 8 hours when used at walking speed. As for the cargo load, it can carry up to 40 pounds at one time, and has space equal to two loaded grocery bags. Other features worth mentioning include a locking mechanism to protect your stuff, a 360-degree camera, and light and sound communication.
