I spent the day following DAX, a delivery robot in Philomath. DAX delivers burritos to the patrons of the local Mexican restaurant. He navigates the sleepy streets of the small town at four miles an hour, and stops to say hi astounded residents. While I was shooting, a woman rolled the window of her car down and yelled, "My 94-year-old mother in law has seen it all now!" An eldelry lady with fire-engine red nails waved and nodded enthusiastically at the robot from the passanger seat.
