1. Amazon is looking at making home deliveries using small unmanned drones.
There are pretty major questions about whether this is just a convenient PR stunt and even more issues with the logistics of hundreds of little aircraft flying through the skies with the latest Game of Thrones box set on board.
2. Amazon says it’s five years off from deploying the technology. So we decided to see whether our U.K. office is ready for drone delivery.
This is the AR Drone 2.0. It costs about £250.
We’re about to find out whether it’s the future of retail delivery.
3. First, we tried delivering a small figurine of Breaking Bad character Walter White to our editor. By tying it to the drone with a piece of string.
4. Unfortunately it pulled the drone horrendously off course and into a glass wall.
Toy Heisenberg was just too heavy.
