Using Drones for Delivery

When you hear the word drone you immediately think of those used to fight wars in other countries. But did you know that in a few years from now we might have drones flying around in our neighborhoods?

There are companies like Amazon who are testing the possibility of delivering packages using drones. So the time to deliver packages will be reduced drastically, especially in our congested cities.

I heard you will be able to buy something online and have a drone bring it to your home in less than half an hour. How cool is that?

Even cooler is the thought of seeing pizza delivery drones flying around in the streets. But I guess this too will come with a bunch of accidents due to mechanical failure or operator’s fault.

I remember I wrote an article many months ago about Amazon drones.

Am waiting for the day when pizza and burgers will be delivered by a drone. Should be interesting, huh? Thanks for a fun article.

I read that article awhile back and I think it is an interesting concept. It is amazing the technology these days, isn't it?

Not to mention lots of people throwing rocks, trying to get a free pizza.
