New trials for delivering goods by drones

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-36892785


Little Johnny and his mate little Monkey, could do drone spotting, instead of train spotting. Alternatively, a bit of practice for clay pigeon shooting.

Interesting though !

Only the other day I was reading about how the authorities can now bring down a drone with a new drone jamming gun. I wonder how long until Joe Public can buy it on eBay and get lots of free stuff from Amazon.
To make matters worse, Amazon won't have Cameras on their drones. Wonderful news for the villains. Manna from heaven indeed.
Wake up Amazon, it's not an ideal world.

I forgot to add, in order for you to get a drone delivery, you will need a special drone landing mat to place in your garden, for the drone to home into and land on. I wonder how you get the mat delivered?

Presumably use of this delivery system would attract a premium charge from Amazon.

How I hope it will never happen - we've got too much modern technology already.

labels on test drones state 'air prime' or similar sounds like a premium over the current prime cost

Don't like the idea - depending how much weight they carry and if they were mass produced cheap enough could be used by terrorists (carry bombs)
How would anyone know which were Amazon ones and which were other if there's 1000,s flying about

Personally I instinctively dislike the idea of drones whizzing around over my head, probably because of safety issues. No device is entirely foolproof, so there would inevitably some damage or injury done by faulty drones. Having thought about it though every drone I have ever seen emits a loud engine noise so that the sound of them buzzing overhead would be the biggest nuisance and impossible to get away from. frown
