Amazon Drones coming for you
It must be nearly Christmas if Amazon are able to come up with a gimmick like this. Apparently they are testing the idea of using drones to deliver goods straight to your house.
Now, as a marketing concept I am loving this and it is rigth up there with Richard Branson 'Galactic' concepts of keeping people thinking about your brand as innovative, even when nothing will come to pass.
I mean really, I'd love to see drone deliveries to tower blocks in Tottenham etc. Not to mention my dog tearing big chunks out of it before being mangled in the propeller blades. this is before we add in the costs of flying the thing.
Perhaps in mid-West America where population is sparse this may one day be a feasible idea. Anyway, its a fund concept nd shows soon we will all be able to buy our own drones - what would you use yours for?
