As companies like Amazon, Wal-Mart, and DHL begin to invest in drones to deliver packages, a company called Starship Technologies has developed what is, in essence, a terrestrial drone that looks like a little Mars buggy.

Its squat, six-wheeled, battery powered robots are capable of trundling along a sidewalk, climbing up a ramp, and dropping off groceries at a doorstep. (Switzerland will debut them soon.)
