Volvo delivers

Not sure if I think this is a good idea or not, but it definitely is an amazing application of amazing technology:

With a hat tip to Carpe Diem, here's an excerpt from a Volvo news release:
In a ground-breaking technology move for the automotive industry, Volvo Cars demonstrates the world’s first delivery of food to the car – a new form of ‘roam delivery’ services. The service, which will be showcased at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, will allow consumers to have their shopping delivered straight to their car, no matter where they are.
Seems like an unintended consequence of this might be a spike in car thefts/burglaries. In any event, it's pretty cool.
