moglito writes: Autonomous in-door delivery robots coupled with automated fridges in the basement of high-rise apartment buildings could create a "never-empty" fridge for residents. Coupled with AI algorithms for learning what residents like to consume, and algorithms for automatically restocking those items via a network of suppliers or logistics companies, this "bot-mart" could make grocery shopping a — boring and time consuming — thing of the past. Cheap, self-driving car services may make the need for a garage obsolete. Will robots similarly reduce the need for a kitchen next? In high-density, urban areas where the cost of living is skyrocketing, this would certainly be a welcome relief from the constant lack of space.
