Amazon will soon deliver packages using aerial drones




Looks like Amazon has something very interesting up their sleeves as the retail giant unveiled their plans to deliver packages using unmanned aerial vehicles, aka drones – the Amazon Prime Air.

The Amazon Prime Air is a new delivery system that uses drones to get packages into customers’ hands in 30 minutes or less. According to Amazon, one day, “Prime Air vehicles will be as normal as seeing mail trucks on the road today.” Watch the demo video below:


 

However, the service is not ready yet for prime time as Amazon needs to have the approval of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for this type of device. As of the moment, the FAA is working on rules and regulations which is expected to be in place sometime in 2015. Amazon says Prime Air will be ready by that time.

    Very hi tech. But I find it funny as well. If you live in the US, you might get spooked that a drone is landing by your doorstep! LOL. Baka akala pa nga bomb threat. :)

    • OK yan pag nag emergency landing sa bahay mo tapos PS4 ang laman. :P

      Hmm, bakit ka naman matatakot? Eh you should expect it after you buy in Amazon. Bibili-bili ng item, pipiliin ang Prime Air delivery, tapos you’ll get spooked by it? Funny talaga! LOL.

    • Smokescreen says:

      bobby – Bakit? Hindi ka pa ba nagugulat sa buong buhay mo? Even if you choose this delivery method, malalaman mo ba what time exactly darating? Malay mo nagdidilig ka tapos may maglalanding sa likod mo. LOL

      30 minutes lang naman ang waiting time kaya expected mo na may delivery ka. Hindi ka na magugulat. Hintay hintay din pag may time.

    • Smokescreen says:

      rafsison – Pwede. Pero nakalagay 30mins or less. So pwede rin di mo pa rin alam when. Basta 30mins max. Alam mo naman tao sa US, laging busy. Hindi lahat ng tao nasa lawn mag aabang ng drone for 30mins. Mas likely do house chores na lang while waiting. Also if may ibang tao sa house, possible di nila alam nag order ka and sula naman magulat.

    Ok yan ha…yun lang, sa sobrang faming nagdedeliver, hinde ba magkabunguan yan sa ere at magkaaksidente, mahulugan ang isang tao?

    And i agree, possible lang yan dito sa Pinas para sa may mga business delivery At baka nakawin lang yan kapag residential area ang i-serve.
