Online retailer Amazon hopes to have mini drones delivering packages to customers in just 30 minutes, its chief executive has claimed. |
During a TV appearance in the United States, Jeff Bezos played a video showing the tiny robotic devices, known as octocopters, which pick up items in small yellow buckets and whiz them through the air.
"I know this looks like science fiction. It's not," Mr Bezos told CBS television's 60 Minutes show.
"We can do half-hour delivery ... and we can carry objects, we think, up to five pounds (2.3kg), which covers 86% of the items that we deliver."
Will any warriors also be offering this service?
