How Easy Is It To Deliver Things By Drone? Let's Find Out
Hope you're taking notes, Amazon.
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.
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.
Then we tried flying the drone with just a piece of string. But the string wrapped itself around the rotor blades and the crash was so awful that we can't really show you.
So we gave up and taped a dinosaur to the top of the device to make a Tyrannosaurus Drone.
And terrified colleagues attacked by the flying drone dinosaur reacted badly.
Then we flew it even further and downloaded its scary spy camera footage.
In conclusion: The only realistic outlet for Amazon's drone service is in the niche toy dinosaur model delivery market.
