I saw this on a segment of 60 Minutes tonight. Jeff Bezos showed Charlie Rose how Amazon’s Prime Air service will work. For packages under 5 pounds (which is over 80% of the products they sell), and delivery destinations within 10 miles of a distribution center, they’ll be able to deliver to your front door via an electric octo-copter drone. It’ll take another couple of years for them to roll the service out, as FAA rules aren’t even written to govern this kind of air traffic.
Check it out – it’s the future.
