amazon drone Amazon Drones to Deliver Prime Packages

Are Amazon Drones the Future of Fast Delivery?

This week on 60 Minutes, Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, unveiled Amazon’s newest and most futuristic project named Amazon Prime Air which is a package delivery service via drones. Bezos stated that the current plan is to have packages delivered to customers that live within 10 miles of any Amazon Fulfillment Center via Amazon drones. The Amazon drones, or as some have called them ‘Octocopters’, can carry items up to five pounds and will deliver these packages in under 30 minutes. Although Bezos did mentioned it will take another 4 to 5 years to have Amazon Prime Air come to life as the project is still in the research and development stages.
