Technology: Delivery Drones

Amazon, the online retail giant, is asking regulators for permission to test out delivery drones in Seattle, escalating a debate about the safety and privacy concerns associated with this new technology. Delivery drone test flights have been conducted indoors and outside of the United States, but Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos wants to conduct these tests in the open air. Six test sites have currently been designated for commercial drone applications, all outside of the Seattle area where Amazon is based.  With this new technology, sky robots could potentially drop each five-pound delivery on doorsteps in less than 30 minutes.
