If you’re a lover of your neighborhood community, care about sustainable ways of living, and would like to up your step count, Near and Far has the project for you.

The company connects creative-thinking individuals to businesses around the country and is looking for 30 people based in Seattle, Austin, or Atlanta, hoping to make walking a bigger part of their lives.

Those chosen to participate in the six-month project will receive a Gita, a cargo-carrying following robot, to help carry any loose items and encourage hands-free walking.

If you’re interested in taking part in the project, send a message to the Near and Far Instagram page.
