Many of us remember the story some of our parents spun to us when we were young to avoid the truth of “where we came from”. A stork delivering soft plump babies to new mothers is a much nicer tale to tell young’uns than what really went on. Well, those storks might well be out of a job, as it looks like drone delivery services might be the future after a parcel delivering drone successfully completed a flight in Auckland. And while we’re all familiar with airmail, this is something else.
Mention the word drones and images of indiscriminate bombing come to mind. But Ex-Wired editor Chris Anderson has a different take on things and he’s been extolling the virtues of—and making a business out of—unmanned flying devices for years. Now Domino’s has also seen the light and, as this video of the ‘DomiCopter’ shows, the pizza of the future might be airborne.
