These tunnels don't have to be very
deep underground, just difficult to
access for people. It doesn't have to
be big, either, because the tunnel is
exclusively for robots. Robots in the
network will transport everything
from mail to groceries across cities
for their human masters. Smart
wireless communication and
coordination amongst robots will
reduce wait times at intersections.
Shopping &c will be managed
through remote video conferencing
via the equipments onboard the
robots. Fuel is not wasted in
transporting human beings along
with the vehicle from point A to point
B and back for these menial tasks.
Nor will excessive lighting be
necessary - an optical sensor (a la
modern PC mice) at the bottom of
these robots will satisfy most of their
viewing needs during transportation.

Like this, but with robots instead of the Irish. [Laughs Last, Oct 17 2004]
Those underground robot networks can *really* get out of hand...

||Don't we...have to have the robots first?
||Makes me wonder about future robot assassination attempts.
||Difficult for people to access these tunnels, yet easy for robots to access us, though these tunnels? hmph...
||Anyways, I like this idea alot. Fits well for us ultra-lazy folks.
||The low tech solution to having your goods without clogging up cities is subsistance farming.
||sloop: the network or the extermination...?
||I think he meant the tails.
