Take that, Amazon! "Bacon Drone" delivers full English breakfast (or at least a tiny speck of it)

From The Register:

In what is described as "a breakthrough moment for humanity", a British bloke has constructed a tricopter designed to remotely deliver a full English breakfast of bacon, egg, sausage, mushroom and tomato ketchup.

Joel Veitch's Bacon Drone

Joel Veitch's cutting-edge design of "sticks and tape and coat hangars" is controlled by a 3D Robotics ArduPilot Mega 2.5, with an onboard camera and transmitter providing First Person View (FPV) to a set of googles.

The breakfast ingredients are packed into a length of 32mm plumbing tube, plugged at one end. A servo-activated R/C car glow plug and flash cotton at the capped end project nosh at the hungry recipient at the required moment, although Veitch's video demonstrates just how much breakfast they get is a hit-and-miss affair.

The big question here is: Can it deliver my eggs sunny side up, with the yokes intact? I like to break my own, and spread 'em like gravy!

The UK has been at the forefront of breakfast technology for some time now.

You will have to watch a couple of minutes first.

There is a Benny Hill sketch in there somewhere.

Really handy in a food fight.

Nice work Joel, but the Viking Kittens are still best ;)
