Worried about the robot revolution? So is San Francisco, apparently. The city imposed heavy regulations earlier this month that are likely to discourage companies from building delivery robots.

Companies can only use the square delivery machines for research, not actual deliveries, and they must get permits to use their robots in certain approved areas.
