Prime Air

A future drone delivery system from Amazon

#2 Product of the DayNovember 29, 2015

Prime Air is Amazon's last-mile delivery solution for the next decade, with autonomous drones that can deliver packages directly to your house in less than an hour. Two-day delivery is already becoming too slow, it seems πŸ‘€

Amazon published a video showing off its new Prime Air design, and it's a beauty! 😍 This is a big departure from the initial version, announced in 2013. Prime Air is a project by Amazon which promises delivery by drone in 30 minutes or less. Though it's not yet publicly available, Jeff Bezos estimates it'll officially launch in 3-4 years. With this latest version, it looks like Amazon is making significant progress and is taking this project very seriously. I want this right now, @JeffBezos!

I just love how jeremy clarkson is the narrator.
@saulsutcher I can't wait for the "Drone in a Reasonably Priced Car" segment.
@mattschaar @saulsutcher As long as Prime Air doesn't use the same drone pilots that drive The Grand Tour drones we should be good! ;)
@mattschaar @saulsutcher Or 'celebrity in a reasonably priced drone'?
Little known fact is that the Drones are piloted by their tamed racing pilot, The Stig.
I would like to see how the regulatory environment looks in 3-4 years. I have been an avid model airplane builder for about 15 years and an AMA member. A drone flying 1-2lb of cargo over subdivisions would be the stuff of dreams, yet would be a litigation disaster the first time it failed. It happens a lot now, look how the film world has been disrupted by drones, mostly unregulated, and a lot of profit has been made. I think there is a bright future for this, on both the product side and the legal/regulatory side.

The video makes me think of "Uber for Drones"
