Amazon has recently revealed it's newest experimental drone-based delivery system Amazon Prime Air, and while it seems to have good intentions, real world application could be a real stretch. The service is scheduled to be available sometime in 2015, after complying with the Federal Aviation Administration’s regulations, and much more R&D. Another interesting article of this service can be found on Time Tech.
With only a claimed 10-mile radius of delivery from shipping centers, and the prospect of people deliberately shooting the drones down, what do you think? Will getting your ~5lb. package in 30 minutes be worth the price? What do people do with the container once the package is delivered? There are many questions, with very few answers.
Below is the video Amazon presented of the system/service.
