$15,000 Robot Sent on a Scone Run in California

If you had a $15k robot, what would you do with it? Have it defuse bombs or fight other robots? Or build a robot army in preparation for world domination? Well, if you're an engineer at Anybots in Mountain View, California, you make it get you breakfast.

Here's a video of one of their robots rolling into the Red Rock Coffee shop about a mile from the Anybots office — seemingly on its own — and ordering a berry scone. It then paid the barista (including a rather large tip), made a joke about the "paparazzi" filming it on their smart phones, and rolled out. Check out the video below.
