I, for one, welcome our fried chicken dispensing robot overlords.

One of those drives through my neighborhood we're taking it's wheels off. ;)

But can you find enough autonomous chickens to drive the vans? These days the damn chickens are too lazy to even cross the road!

Sort of like a salt lick for cows but not quite as nutritious.

Interesting. It is in Shanghai, but all the text is in Japanese.
"The place is an intersection in front of a subway station just outside the city of Shanghai. There are two unmanned vehicles, one of which is KFC. Maybe only during the morning-noon hours (not seen on the way home). Payment is QR code payment. A mechanism that opens the door when payment is completed."
