Prime Air

Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon.com, recently announced that the company is working on a new delivery system called Prime Air. It won’t be trucks with drivers that bring your packages to your home. Instead, it’ll be little flying drones that land at your doorstep with your items. These drones will take less than 30 minutes from the time you order to deliver your packages. A package will need to weigh less than 5 pounds (2.3 kg) for the drone to be able to carry it. Now don’t expect your next Amazon package to show up flying at your doorstep. It will take Prime Air a few years to get started. Here is a video.
