This delivery robot has proven popular at airports in Cincinnati and Rome, where it brings meals and duty-free items to travelers who are waiting.
Businesses can subscribe to delivery robots and custom-build them to include refrigeration or heating to keep food and beverages at the correct temperature. Fully autonomous robots can transport groceries and items to the curb, last mile, and even indoors.
Ever heard of a robotic pill? This is one of the cool technologies on display at @GITEX_GLOBAL. Manufactured by the Silicon Valley-based company @endiatx, the PillBot could allow people to have an endoscopy from the comfort of their homes!#GITEXGLOBAL https://t.co/hJ3HmLdLSP pic.twitter.com/9prYeBcioJ— Khaleej Times (@khaleejtimes) October 14, 2022
The PillBot, created by the Silicon Valley-based business endiatx, might allow patients to have an endoscopy from the comfort of their own homes! The robotic pill made of polycarbonate, which squirts water in six different directions when swallowed, will allow a doctor to remotely check a patient's insides through a virtual call. According to its creators, the technology has the potential to revolutionize medical care and relieve significant strain on the healthcare system.
The pill is incredibly affordable at $35 and only has to work for 5-10 minutes to provide doctors a good peek inside the stomach. It will naturally flow through the human body. Torrey claims to have previously consumed 15 of the pills for research purposes.
EndiaTX COO Bill Dixon hopes to deliver the device in the market over the next three years, despite the fact that it is still in the development phase.
