It sounds like a late April Fool’s joke, but no. Amazon has really just announced a new service called Amazon Prime Air, where sometime in the next few years select customers can get stuff delivered straight to their doorstep via drone.
You can’t use it yet – Amazon is awaiting approval from the FAA – but they’re expecting the green light for unmanned delivery sometime in 2015. Then when final testing and R&D is done after that (the footage you see here is from a test flight), they hope to be able to deliver stuff to people’s homes “in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles”.
