Amazon Reveals “Prime Air,” A Future Drone Delivery System

As they continue to collect money from individuals like myself in between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Amazon has just revealed Prime Air. A future game-changer that looks to kill off any need for human delivery (for products 5 lbs or less for the time being).

We’re excited to share Prime Air – something the team has been working on in our next generation R&D lab. The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers’ hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles. Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations. This is footage from a recent test flight.

Welp, it looks my bank account is gonna be in shambles in a couple years. Awesome.
