The future of parcel delivery isn’t trucks, it’s drones—and Amazon is on it. After the company’s first successful drone delivery back in December in the U.K., it’s continued to hone its airborne delivery techniques. This week, Amazon finally debuted its Amazon Prime Air drone delivery in the U.S. at the MARS robotics conference in Palm Springs, California. And thankfully, someone captured the momentous occasion on video, so you can experience it, too.
You can watch the short video below to see the quadcopter fly through the air, land with its package, and then fly away.
My favorite part is when, after landing on its designated landing pad, the drone slowly rises, leaving behind a “present” for its recipient. It feels very much like a creature taking a dump and then flying away, right?
Another bystander—August Home Inc.’s Jason Johnson—captured the delivery from a different angle on Periscope.
