Walmart is partnering up with Nuro's self-driving R1 vehicle, which will be the people's grocery ox and cart for all intents and purposes. The test run will be conducted in Houston, Texas, and only for select stores and customers who opted into the program.

The whole point of the test is so Walmart and Nuro can "develop and refine" this coming service, which is sure to gain traction in the years to come. This new technology isn't right around the corner just yet, as both Walmart and Nuro have many real-world obstacles they have to overcome. Examples of this would be snow, random sidewalk objects, speed of delivery, the accuracy of delivery, regulations etc, etc.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
