    I live in lockeford Im sure my kids will get a kick out of watching this deliver packages.

  2. Michael Noble on July 8, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    I’d be concerned on how big the drones need to carry.

  3. Unknown User on July 8, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    And what if it crashes on someone?!

    Target Practice . . . with prizes!

  6. E Maccabee on July 8, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    just wait til the first dog or baby gets blended by one of those things and its all over.

    Thinking that a "Helipad" of sorts constructed on ones rooftop with some sort of a weather proof package chute akin to them mail slots in doors might be the way to go if there is a way to ensure that it is only a desired delivery and not something else. Apartment buildings, if rooftop access could be made safe for such actions as amazon prime deliveries..well..would increase customer base.. notifications on ones device at time of landing so to have the access granted to the roof for said delivery.
    will be interesting to see how all this plays out.

    People will be shooting these out of the sky like a pinatas full of goodies.

  9. Maria Benjamin on July 8, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    So cool

  10. Radio Flakes on July 8, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    I can already see videos of the family dog "rag-dolling" one of these drones.
    A pitbull will lock-jaw on to one of these invaders and be carried back to the Amazon warehouse.

  11. Jason on July 8, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    How loud is this?

  12. D. P. on July 8, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Drones. More tone deaf offerings like their “subscription” options to individual products. They expect everything to be on a zombie subscription. Who has the time or interest in managing 100s of subscriptions? Who needs toothpaste RIGHT NOW? The “just in time” manufacturing fiasco was shown to be a liability when they shut down the world but they want their individual customers on their same flawed ethos? Tone deaf Amazon.

  13. PeterD on July 8, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Great. Amazon and Google drones recording everything on private property wherever they fly. Zero privacy rights for sheep.

  14. Tray Homes on July 8, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Well, they just made it that much easier for porch pirates to steal packages. These drones can be shot out of the sky with just a slingshot. Criminals are going to have so much fun with this! 🤣
    Just wait and see 🙄

  15. Francisco Figueroa on July 8, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Revolutionary .

  16. what's🌹🌹new on July 8, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    gahhhlee!! bye bye humans. bye bye jobs…

  17. eric maurer on July 8, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Finally these drones can make a paycheck to feed their baby drones.

  18. 21daytona502 on July 8, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    At least a drone would be more impressive than the regular UPS, FedEx or USPS trucks in front of my house.

  19. Arthur Au on July 8, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    One question I have about these drone delivery systems is do they work in bad weather say if it is raining or cloudy or even snowing or does the drone only work in perfect sunny weather?

  20. nothing nothing on July 8, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Russian robots?

  21. Peanut on July 8, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Or you just walk to the store and have a free small workout as well. It will help against the massive amount of obesity in America.

  22. DeebZZZ on July 8, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Lucky I live in lockford

    Would Bezos like to have those things buzzing over his home?

  25. Max Larson on July 8, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    First Amazon wants to get into your house then into your Garage and NOW they want to get into your backyard. Just hand your soul over to Amazon and make them have full control over your now worthless life.

  26. Lisa Mohammed on July 8, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    Wow 😳 that is what I am afraid for injuring someone

  27. 卢军宏台长心灵法门 on July 8, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Black holes exist in the universe;
    they also come to exist in our hearts if we
    cling to our own thoughts and judgements.

  28. Altyn Dom on July 8, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    All it takes is one guy with a transmitter to hijack the drone.

  29. DireAvenger001 on July 8, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Feels like it could be a real breach of privacy. Wouldn’t they be flying fairly low over people’s residences?

  30. Bumers Stock on July 8, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    A criminal can shoot them down

  31. MOH SYAHRIR LATAR 046_A2 on July 8, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    People gonna steal that drone
    If the see in street😁

  32. Godzilla King on July 8, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    This could work in civilized countries, sadly not in the US.

  33. Elkster Eidolon on July 8, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    They’ve already been scanning people, soundbeaming them and used as surveillance devices.
