PepsiCo is launching a fleet of robots to bring snacks to college students

PepsiCo today announced that it will launch a fleet of snack robots on the campus of the University of the Pacific in California.

The robots - or "snackbots" - carry snacks and drinks from the company's Hello Goodness portfolio, which includes options such as Smartfood Delight, Baked Lays, Pure Leaf Tea, and Starbucks Cold Brew drinks. 

Students can apply for the iOS, app and deliver it to selected locations around the 175-acre campus between 9am and 5pm.

Snackbots are almost the same as other plugins we've seen before. They can travel 20 miles on a single charge, and have headlights and a camera. 

Once the students meet the robot, they open its green cover and hold on to it.

PepsiCo said it was the largest food and beverage company on the market, starting to offer snacks and drinks via Android

Last year, the kiwi led a similar service at the University of California at Berkeley. 

Students at the university were so fond of robotic messengers that when a fire broke out due to a battery failure, they held a candlelight vigil for the device.

According to the California Daily, students on Facebook called robot "hero" and "legend."

The iOS application app is available with a valid Pacific University email address.
