Did you know the word "gullible" isn't in the dictionary?

Sigh. Prepare for loads of credulous coverage, matching the wave of reporting on the Pirate Bay's stoned suggestion that "we're going to use, er....GPS drones!....to file-trade from the sky. With Raspberry Pi."

This is only the best idea ever!

Please Chris, be careful not be too hasty by suggesting anyone who thinks "physical transport by drone" must be smoking something. Please see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7B3E4OOuGDk [13min] where Andreas Raptopoulos makes a pretty compelling, economic/viability case that this not only could, but should be done.

someone's got to get written into history as the guy who told Orville and Wilbur that it won't fly...

Wow, we had a pizza idea similarly...maybe in 10yrs...


Beat us to it...

It's not that it isn't possible to deliver something using a drone.  It just lacks something in the area of feasibility currently.  You would need a wide open space for the drone to drop off the pizza, or you would probably start losing drones and pizzas.  If people were willing to pay for a rooftop drone landing site that would be cool.  I can see couriers using drones for point to point deliveries during rush hour in a city.

Its for sure an April Fool, it did raise a smile though. Beats me how a business model could make a case for delivering a $5 item with a really expensive thing.

Really expensive? Compared to a car and driver this is comparatively cheap!

Oh I wish this was real...
