Amazon promises 30 minute delivery via drones with Amazon Prime Air

Amazon has become an unstoppable force over recent years, and even with bad press they seem to be getting bigger and bigger. One of the reasons behind their growth is innovation which can sometimes seem a little eccentric.

This time Jeff Bezos has revealed that the company have developed drones that are capable of carrying 5 pounds (2.26KG) to your home within 30 minutes.

86% of Amazons packages fit this weight criteria and the drone will sit at the end of a conveyer belt waiting to pick up your package and then carry them up to 10 miles to your home.

Obviously there are a whole bunch of obstacles to overcome before this becomes reality, the main one being flight regulations from the corresponding countries they are rolled out too. Also it would likely be restricted to the most populous of cities that are within the 10 mile reach of an Amazon fulfilment centre. Health and safety issues will also come into play, and no doubt working out how to avoid people trying to steal the packages.

We can’t wait to see the final service in operation though.
