The pizzacopters are currently only able to deliver steaming hot pizza to recipients within 1.5 mile of Domino's, but the company says that it is looking to expand the area to 10 mile radius. Also to receive pizza's in your backyard you have to register to the service and have a big enough yard for the drone to land.
The company responsible for the drones, Flirtey, has also completed a government sanctioned test in the US last year. The company is looking to expand to the US and already working on different kind of drone delivery services. It seems however, that it is the legislation and regulations of the FAA that keep us from having flying robots deliver our pizzas.
This notion always has been and still is flat out dumb as shit!!!!!!!!!!!
First off, 1.5 miles IN THE AIR with my hot pizza, likely will be cold when it arrives.
10 miles is even worse.
And don't get me started on the idea of being "more in tune with humanity" or more "personal touches" with this stupid idea. Jobs gone! Replaced only by techs in a company designing overtly obnoxious drones.
Commercial drones are lame and have no place in this world IMO!
They are for viewing and reaching places the human eye can't see or access. Services rendered by drones is a true example of the impersonal nature of humanity.
