Bipedal Robot Cassie May Be Used for Delivering Packages

(TheVerge) Agility Robotics has created created a bipedal robot named Cassie that’s steady, self-balancing, and able to adapt to uneven terrain. Cassie also adds a 3-degrees-of-freedom hip joint that allows it to be steered more easily, and powered ankles that mean it doesn’t have to jig from foot to foot to stand still but can just stand.
Agility Robotics suggests their tech could be used to make search-and-rescue bots; to help improve prosthetic limbs or exoskeletons; and, presumably if the bots become cheap enough, delivering packages.
