‘Amazon Rockets’ pledges to deliver your goods in five minutes


Amazon has caught a lot of flack for introducing the idea of 30-minute drone deliveries. Since its announcement earlier this week, everyone and their mother have been concerned about piddling little details like the severing of hands as the drone tries to deliver goods and whether or not the drones will crash and destroy their cargo. Sure, these are valid concerns, and yes people would like to receive their goods without being maimed, but one rapid shipping enthusiast wants Amazon to go even farther.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos spoke to CBS host Charlie Rose on his 60 Minutes program today, and revealed that the company is experimenting with delivering packages via drones within a mere 30 minutes. The new delivery system — dubbed ‘Prime Air’ by Amazon — is something that the company has been working on in its R&D lab.
