    Question Amazon Prime Air

    yea or no?



    No joke. Amazon notes, "It looks like science fiction, but it's real." Packages weighing up to five pounds will be eligible for the service. Items will be loaded into a small container and picked up by one of the drones — which Amazon calls "octocopters" — and zipped through the air to your delivery destination. Bezos said that, although extensive testing and FAA compliance is required, he expects the drones to be "fully autonomous and in operation within four or five years," according to BusinessInsider.

    The CEO of Amazon admitted that 5 years was too optimistic...
    And there are restrictions in distance, like they would only do it within a certain amount of miles from a distribution center...

    Dominos is developing a program like this too... I can see a pizza chain being more successful with this... The potential for theft and lost and damaged goods is so high.. people wont be willing to order a $700 tablet using this method... but will more willing to rixk $30 to lose 5 Pies

    Dominos was first though..

    But dont expect Amazon or Dominos drones to come to densely populated cities or metropolitan areas
