Cargo Carrying Robot Could Make Shopping Easier

CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Walking to and from the grocery store may be a little less of a chore if someone, or something, carried everything for you.

That's just what one Charlestown based tech company is hoping to do with a new product set to hit the market. Gita, which is Italian for "short trip," is a two wheeled robot with front facing cameras, weighs 50 lbs and can carry up to 45 lbs of cargo. It turns on a dime and can keep up with a brisk walk.
