Amazon Prime Air
The video for Amazon Prime Air has been making its rounds, but if you missed it, check out the future here.
There are any number of hurdles to surmount, such as FAA regulations, lawsuits from people getting packages and/or drones dropped on their heads, hackers breaking into the remote controls, and...drone hunting merchandise pirates. But Amazon is aiming for a 2015 unveiling, and if anyone can overcome these obstacles, it'd have to be a marriage of innovation and deep pockets like Amazon possesses. UPS is apparently working on similar technology.
