The Transport Of The Future Has Arrived – Amazon Has Tested Its Delivery Options With Robot Drones
Posted: December 3, 2013 by Kate Smith
One may call it: "The Delivery of the Future", a 30 minute away buy click from your home (well, at least for packages under 5 pounds). Amazon's robot drone made its first flight test of the ultimate delivery system that will change distribution forever. Awaiting the approval of FAA, the robots will probably begin flying out to homes as early as 2015, Amazon's CEO Bezos claims.
The idea and purpose of the service called "Prime Air" is to distribute parcels to customers in 30 minutes or less, depending on the weight.
These drones, originally used in the US military service, put the existence of UPS' and FedEx's future into question, as these flying robots will simply replace their services.
However, until the Flying Federation approves of this service, we can only wait to see the possibility of this brilliant yet spooky concept.
