In what could be one of the craziest and most brilliant ideas, Amazon has announced that they are working on a new delivery service called “Amazon Prime Air“. The new delivery system uses a small unmanned aerial robot to fly packages you order from Amazon directly to your house in 30 minutes or less!
This delivery option would be absolutely amazing if it could work properly. More consumers than ever before purchase items online, in fact statistics show that e-commerce alone has brought in nearly $289 billion in the U.S for 2012. There’s no doubt that the will be a huge demand for this type of service but whether or not it can be done remains to be seen.
Amazon admits that it will take many years for this service to get up an running on a commercial scale and that one of the first major hurdles will be lining up FAA rules and regulations, but the service could be up and running as soon as 2015. What do you think about this service?
