NEW YORK — Your days of schlepping groceries home may soon be a thing of the past.
Meet GITA, a robot designed to carry cargo-like groceries and follow around a pedestrian or a cyclist.
Created by the folks at Vespa — yes the same people that design those fun little scooters — GITA is aimed to help consumers with their mundane chores.
Gita is the first creation from the the Italian companies Boston-based division called "Piaggio Fast Forward."
It stands about 2 feet tall and can carry about 40 pounds of stuff that you put into the cargo bin. It also travels at a top speed of 22 mph
So far, no word yet on when it'll be made available to the public or how much it'll cost the average consumer.
