Do you remember in The Terminator when Skynet became self-aware and how that pretty much meant the end of the world?
I have a feeling it started with something like this.
It has been in the works for a long time, but Amazon seems like it's finally ready to deploy it's new Prime Air service, which will deliver packages in thirty minutes or less using unmanned drones.
Yes. Drones. Flying the toaster you just ordered to your front door.
Look, I use Amazon Prime, like, 3 times a week. It's one of my best investments. I buy way too many things that I absolutely do not need. In the last week, I've purchase an Instant Pot (which I will use but not as often as I should; but look, it was $89, $200 off the regular sale price), an Amazon Kindle Voyage, some books, some card games and a bunch of other crap that I don't need. But Prime has free shipping!
And so I can tell you that when Amazon finally gets regulatory approval to fly their little drones around to give me my packages, you can bet your bottom dollar that I will use it all the time. I will order a roll of toilet paper just so I can sit outside and watch for that little awesome drone flying peacefully through the air. At least until it turns into a robot and decides to murder me.
You can find out more new information about about Amazon Prime Air —including their regulatory requests—here. The future is just about here, everyone.
