New (Almost Anti) Social Network Leverages Robots To Help Communites Connect

Want to communicate more freely and build deeper relationships with your neighbors? How about doing so with a pizza delivering robot? The new social network for neighbors will help communities collaborate through technology including robots (really!).

Founder Raj Abhyanker’s goal with fatdoor is to create a connected community for the traditional disconnected real-life neighborhood. This would include the ability for neighbors to sent waning messages about crime, deliver food via drones or film block parties.

They’ve even included the Bot Appetit, a 3 foot high rover that scoots along sidewalks to perform tasks. The Bot Appetit could deliver food to neighbors via WiFi or a 3G connection. They’ve also planned on a Skyteboard quadcopter that has cameras and can be used to film neighborhood activities.

Fatdoor will begin testing the Bot Appetit for food delivery in Palo Alto and has set up a Kickstarter campaign to help launch the Skyteboard 3G.
