Israeli designers have proposed swarms of single-wheeled robot drones could soon replace delivery truck. Of course you may have have a problem when they drop a 350 pound refrigerator at your door and take off.

Kobi Shikar, an engineering and design student at Shenkar School of Engineering and Design in Ramat Gan, Israel, claims they could even replace the need for container lorries.

He said the robotic delivery service could replace the need for large delivery vehicles clogging up the roads but perhaps more usefully it may also remove the need to deliver items during working hours.
Story here.
It also brings to mind the scifi movie, "I. Robot" wherein delivery robot drones prove to more more of a handful than a helper.

I can see some interesting traffic accident reports arising from the use of drones. And let's not forget the lawsuits...
