The Amazon Drones

Postby rabble » Wed Dec 04, 2013 10:00 am

When I first heard of it I hadn't seen this video so I was thinking of the standard military drone airplanes and I was wondering if Amazon planned on bombing us with our own purchases like a robot WKRP thanksgiving mission.

Now I know they'll be using little drone helicopters so I'm not so worried. Although the fact that the guy keeps himself and his kid safely behind the closed patio doors till the drone goes away doesn't inspire much confidence for the safety of anyone caught out in the open during the delivery.

They might not ever use drones, but Amazon sure got a lot of free advertising during the Xmas shopping season.
