Last night on 60 minutes Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos dropped a bombshell. The future of Amazon is that you click on the “Buy Now” button and 30 minutes later an unmanned aircraft (drone) lands on your front lawn with your purchase. Nope, this is not a cyber Monday prank, it’s for real. It’s the future and it’s coming. Don’t expect this to happen next week though… Bezos says that it might take 4-5 years, mainly because they are waiting on FAA Restrictions to be worked out. The launch date for now is 2015 and Amazon says they’ll be ready. My bet is that people will order stuff they don’t need just so they can see the drone fly into their yard. Heck, I know I will….
