Some of the technical issues will be solved.
What about "wrong" deliveries (wrong house, wrong product, no one is home to accept the delivery)?
What about thieves who might hang around the distribution centers shooting these drones out of the sky for an easy score?
What about deliveries to apartments where there is no yard? Fewer people will own houses in the future.
I like their "outside the box" thinking, but I see very limited potential here. It might be more practical for much larger drones to be guided to local delivery centers instead, then hand off the products to be delivered with automated delivery cars. Of course, we're talking about same day premium service.
Maybe in the future it'll make more sense for us to own the drones and just send them out to do our chores, visiting completely automated fulfillment centers?
