Fast food company Domino’s has announced it is about to test robot delivery to New Zealand customers.
The company has been working with the Government on a plan to permit robot pizza delivery to hungry New Zealanders.
The four-wheeled unit used by domino’s is called DRU (Domino’s Robotic Unit).
Minister of Transport Simon Bridges said the use of the robot is an exciting opportunity. New Zealand is one of the first countries in the world being considered for testing autonomous pizza delivery.
As yet no date has been set for the start of the testing.

  1. Robots will take over the world so NEVER EVER make robots in charge EVER!!!!!!!!!!
    I say this comment in care of others so they wont get hurt, Because when the robots turn on you i wont be there to save you soooo yeah bbbbbbyyyyeeee!!!!!!!!!

  2. LOL! It will probable be like 2,000$ deliverie! But I want pizza weekly now :P, well when it is released 😀

  3. Who would make a robot deliver pizzas i’ve got so much questions to ask how do they open peoples gates were is the pizza is it easy to steal how will you give it the money

  4. Pretty sure that a cylinder on wheels aren’t gonna rise up and attack us.also what would they even attack us with?pizza?pepperoni?

  5. that is so cool hopefully they will make A.I. PIZZA ROBOTS ONE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. OMG THAT’S SO COOL!!!!!!!!!!! Can you do that to me Dominoes? Plus I love you’re pizza’s!

  7. I need that NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  8. Couldn’t somebody steal the robot or pizza while it gets to your house?
    Maybe it should be a drone of some sort.

  9. thats the greatest idea ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. This is either a really smart and clever idea which will work really well, or this is a really stupid idea that will backfire and go horribly wrong. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

  11. The only problem is… how will they protect it from idiots that will completely trash it-graffiti, dent it etc.-. Also how fast do they go?

  12. That’s a really terrible idea. One, as you all have said, someone could steal the pizza. Two, so many lost jobs! And if lots of people lose jobs, they don’t get money. And if they don’t get money, they don’t buy things. So many companies would lose so many customers!
    That is by far the most stupid thing I have heard today.

  13. How would you know what pizza is your’s? Can the robot talk to you about your order? That’s a cool idea!

  14. It will help dominos to deliver pizza to houses without even going!!!
    its incredible and amazing!!!!!!!!
    I wish it would come to deliver pizza to my house!!
