If you're tired of having to carry groceries and other assorted items around like some kind of chump, then you'll be glad to meet Gita (jee-ta). This little dude is an autonomous robot developed by Piaggio — the company that founded Vespa — designed to handle cargo while operating autonomously in a mapped environment.

Gita stands at 26 inches tall and can hit a maximum speed of 22 mph. The 'bot can tail its owner at various speeds, including a crawl, to a walk, to a jog, to riding a bike. And you need not worry about it ever losing control, as its creators claim it possesses the "braking, balancing and vehicle dynamics that you would expect of a high-performance motorcycle.”

Most importantly, Gita can carry an impressive 40 lbs of freight, meaning that not only will it make a great personal slave, but also a top asset for anyone involved in the transportation game.

“Think about how much more freely you would be able to move from one point to another if lugging cumbersome items was removed from the equation," said Piaggio CEO, Jeffrey Schnapp. "Gita frees up the human hand to focus on complex and creative everyday tasks by taking over mundane transportation chores. You can also send your Gita off on missions while you are busy doing something more pressing."
