Amazon May Be Delivering Your Packages Via Drone Sooner Than You Think

It hasn’t been a secret that Amazon is planning on delivering packages via drones. While these plans sound a bit futuristic, Amazon is making moves on carrying their plan out. Last month, they released a video showing a prototype of one of their delivery drones and now Paul Misener, Amazon’s vice president for global public policy, is giving us more information.

In an interview with Yahoo, Misener says the “future delivery service” will get packages to customers within 30 minutes of placing the order online. Here’s the deal: the drones will travel a range over 10 miles and deliver packages up to five pounds.

As for pricing, Misener says “I don’t know that we’ve priced it out yet.” There’s also no need to worry about a noise issue with all these drones flying around. If Amazon’s Prime Air drones are designed correctly, they won’t be loud and obnoxious. Well, that’s good.

And for all the people who think Amazon Prime Air isn’t real, Misener says, “I can tell you, it is very real. We’ve beefed up a team at Amazon Prime Air that includes aeronautical engineers, roboticists, a former NASA astronaut. These folks are completely focused on making this a reality — and demonstrating that it is safe before we begin operations.”

Uh…welcome to the future?
