Get a load of Gita – Piaggio cargo bot
Piaggio Fast Forward is the robot-loving arm of the Italian company. It is pretty pleased with itself too.
The new tech division has unveiled its first product: Gita.
This is a personal cargo robot that is able to haul up to 40 pounds of supplies. It can either follow a map, or its human operator.
It will even keep up with you on a bike as it is capable of trundling along at 22MPH.
As you can probably guess by Gita’s shape, it’ll turn on a sixpence. This should come in handy when weaving in and out of those meat-bag pedestrians.
Could Gita make roadies a thing of the past? Well, we’ll have to wait and see.

Gita – first step
The plan is to roll out the robot to business-to-business test programs. Although, Piaggio fully intends to release a version that you can buy for individual use.
