The world’s largest online retailer, Amazon, has started testing drones for delivery. Called “Octocopters”, the drones are able deliver packages weighing up to 2.3kg to customers within 30 minutes of them placing the order. The service will be called “Prime Air.”
The Chief Executive, Jeff Bezos, believes that the serive could be ready within 5 years. Much depends on the looming FAA legislation on unmanned drones for civilian purposes. Bezos added, “I know this looks like science fiction, but it’s not.” Amazon stated: “From a technology point of view, we’ll be ready to enter commercial operations as soon as the necessary regulations are in place”
Soon, the only human that will be needed to work at Amazon is Besos himself.
