Amazon Prime Air

My pupils were excited and intrigued by the rather sci-fi idea of Amazon delivering to your house within 30 minutes of delivery by a drone called an Octocopter. We discussed it in some detail about the amazing pros and the all to practical cons. Will it ever become a reality?

 

 

Here is an interesting article which covers some of the things we talked about in class, though it also suggests a cynical ploy by Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon!

Ideas like this fire the imagination of learners both young and old. Who knows what kind of a world we will live in by 2020? Driverless cars, 3D printers, undersea hotels, space tourism, and now parcels delivered by robots…. Maybe Blade Runner was on the money after all?
