Vespa makers design robot to carry your stuff

Piaggio, the makers of the Vespa scooter, has built Gita – a bright-blue orb-shaped cargo robot that the company claims has the same “braking, balancing and vehicle dynamics that you would expect of a high-performance motorcycle.”

Gita has a top speed of 22 miles per hour, and can either follow its owner around or navigate environments on its own.

According to the company, Gita is going to be more about augmenting jobs that require a lot of equipment (think maintenance or gardening) than making deliveries.
