    Innovations like this will revolutionize shopping. This type of delivery process has already been active in New Zealand, and is finally becoming an international trend. As time progresses, it is clear that people need this sort of technology to advance their civilization. Time becomes an issue in many people’s lives. The fact that this delivery can happen in thirty minutes is amazing. The world is a NOW type of place. People do not have the time or patience anymore to wait for a package.
    This new technology could potentially have an effect on the economy as well. Having Amazon being one of the world’s most successful business’s, it will require many jobs and people to help make this work. Hopefully other delivery services such as UPS or Fedex will follow in Amazon’s footsteps and use this technology. Not only will that reduce the time needed for delivery truck drivers to get to their destination, but it will also help these business’s grow.

      Looks like we will have to hire back the FAA air traffic controllers that Reagan fired in order to keep the skies safe from drone collisions.

      I find it fascinating how Jeff Bezos seems to intent on disrupting everybody, including himself. There is nothing htat he is doing that companies like Wal-Mart couldn’t have done, however, they had bricks-and-mortar syndrome the way Blockbuster did so that they were so focused on optimizing their old models, they forgot that they themselves were once a new model that disrupted the old models.

    Thomas Edison created an electric pen that produced copies poking holes in the paper and injecting ink in the holes which he thought would be more useful than the telegraph. He also had a plan to use magnets to catch and reverse bullets form guns. I’ll believe the commercial efficacy of drone delivery when I see it. (The electric pen did become useful for tattoos.)

    Predicting the future is hard.

      Yes, “predictions are difficult especially regarding the future” also, predictions are difficult even regarding the past (history re-write),
