When Amazon’s chief executive Jeff Bezos first mentioned that the e-commerce giant ‘Amazon’ wanted to use drones to deliver packages directly to their customers, many though they are talking impossible. But now, three years later, things don’t sound so bizarre. On Wednesday Jeff Bezos announced on Twitter that his company made its first drone delivery on December 7th. The delivery was made in Cambridgeshire, England, and took a huge step forward with the automatic shipment.
A video on Amazon’s web page telecasted the whole delivery process– with a quadcopter drone delivering an Amazon Fire TV box and a bag of popcorn to a customer identified only as Richard B. It took it off from a nearby Amazon warehouse and lasted 13 minutes, covering about 2 miles. Amazon said it would now test two more drone deliveries with two more customers near Cambridge, where the company has a massive drone testing plant. If these tests are successful, Amazon says it wants to expand the number of consumers who can participate in the trials in this drone delivery service. Amazon received British approval this year for flying drones that are not within the site of their operators in rural and suburban areas
