An Australian woman attached an iPad to a scooter and sent it to queue up for the new iPhone. After two days of waiting in line, the robot got her iPhone.

An Australian woman is now the proud owner of the new iPhone and she didn’t even have to queue for it.

Lucy Kelly sent a robot to do the dirty work for her. She attached an iPad to a remote-controlled scooter and sent it off to queue outside the shop.

The robot waited in line for 27 hours ahead of the release of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. Kelly’s robot was one of the first inside the doors of the store once it opened on release day.

Kelly was then able to speak with staff and give her permission for her credit card to be used. She then wheeled the robot out of the store and through Sydney's city centre where it met with her colleagues who collected the phones.

Kelly told AFP that this incident is “a clear demonstration of the future and what's coming.” We’re just surprised that nothing was stolen.
