Starship's delivery robots have reached their largest school campus yet. Purdue students at the university's West Lafayette campus now have the option of ordering robot-delivered food that should arrive in "minutes." As at other schools, deliveries carry a flat $2 fee and work in tandem with your student meal plan. If you're too busy studying to traipse across the university grounds and don't want to spend much more than you're already paying for food, your solution might be at hand.

The bot maker is in the early stages of an expansion that will have thousands of machines serving campuses within the next two years. Students at George Mason University and Northern Arizona University already have access to the robotic couriers, while the University of Pittsburgh should have access later in September.

(WLFI) — A new robot food- delivery service is coming to Purdue University . The city of West Lafayette will begin the pilot-program next month. The creators of Skype are behind this new device called the Starship Technology Robot .

There's a fairly simple logic at work here. The campus rollouts let Starship serve communities without having to wait for permission to operate on public streets. It's also a way to refine the technology in a relatively safe, contained environment before there's a wider deployment. Don't fret if you've long since graduated, then -- you may get more perks (if just a wider choice of food) in return for the wait.

SpaceX Starhopper 'hops' to around 500 feet and flies for just under a minute in new test flight.
SpaceX has completed a second low-altitude test flight of its 'Starhopper' demonstration prototype, which is being used to test technologies that will be used to build the full-scale next-generation SpaceX 'Starship' spacecraft. This test involved 'hopping' the Starhopper (hence the name, get it?) to a height of around 150m (or a little under 500 feet), the highest it's flown so far, at a SpaceX test facility in Texas. After the hop, which lasted around 50 seconds (the GIF above is sped up 2X) it successfully navigated itself to a target landing pad a short distance away.
