    The music makes these sound great wait till you hear those loud drone with 10 big 20 inch props flying over your home. Cities be banning these things as soon as they take to the air. You like camera looking down right into your backyard you know darn well all of that video be recorded. America the free ??? These greedy corporations all they want to do is cut labor cost of people who used to deliver the package.

    It should definitely add on each delivery some body parts super glue.

    So, Andrew Yang and the warnings about automation are real. Perhaps you can join the dot’s now, NBC.

    They are going to be everywhere.

    Unfortunately I am not looking forward to one falling out of the sky and through my windshield, sunlight, or running over one at 60+mph.

    Billion dollar Google…figures. They have to throw the hobbyists that created drones to begin with out of the airspace to make this happen. It won’t be as easy as some think.

    This is why there are all those FAKE DRONE REPORTS.
    Get the RC hobby out of the airspace so A FEW CAN MAKE MILLIONS.
    At the expense of countless honest working class people.

    I want the package on my doorsteps not in the middle of the yard. That would mean I have to go out and get it. Screw those drones

    Its hunting season

    Not all tech advancements provide a net-positive benefit for society, and this is a perfect example.

    Faster, more convenient, cheaper, more accessible, etc. does not necessarily equal increased quality of life for human beings. Drone delivery is a serious threat to privacy, economics, and security.

    I do not want to have to hear or SEE those things buzzing over my neighborhood at all hours of the day or night. This thing can only deliver one package at a time..which means, you’d have to have legions of those damned things buzzing over your neighborhood. So, to counter that, there’s only one thing they can do.. Make them capable of delivering more than one package at a time..hey gang! How about a car sized drone buzzing through your neighbor hood, carrying several hundred pounds of packages. making the racket of 4 gas turbine props?! Imagine that thing losing control and falling out of the sky.. As for the google wings thing here.. Where’s the Anti-Pull string that keeps it from falling out of the air if someone yanks the winch down? They all have an expiration date..just a matter of WHEN.
