The other day, I was chatting with the people in my film class at UMass before Dr. Don Levine showed up for the lecture; we were talking about the developing Amazon Drone Delivery System Technology. I cannot believe that this is really being developed! Can you image having the package that you just ordered online 10 minutes ago be delivered in 20 more? That is just insane to think about. The future really is here.
DHL actually released video footage of carried out initial tests of delivery by parcel-copter in Bonn, Germany, but don’t get your hopes up just yet, according to this article on wired.com it seems like this technology is still quite far off. While I do think that this is exciting, I must say that it is a bit overwhelming for me to imagine a company having such private information on its customers because of the drastic increase in quality of life that this service will provide us.
