Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has revealed on CBS’ 60 Minutes tonight a new delivery concept set to arrive in the next 4 to 5 years–Amazon Prime Air. This service will deliver packages under 5 pounds by drone within a 10 mile radius of distribution centers for 30 minute delivery options.
The craft are autonomous, per Bezos: An Amazon employee would enter a delivery recipients’ GPS address and away the aircraft would fly.
“The hard part here is putting in all the redundancy,” Bezos told interviewer Charlie Rose. “All the reliability to say this can’t land on somebody’s head.”

This will be revolutionary. Let’s hope this will make it to Canada one day.
