This startup is bringing same-day drone shipping to everyone in the world

The future of drone delivery is on the horizon.

For years, drone delivery has been touted as the cargo transport solution of the future with profound benefits, aside from sheer convenience for consumers.

One of the biggest advantages of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is the potential for medical supply delivery in hard-to-reach areas. Unlike cargo planes, drones have the ability to land in remote locations without airports or roads, and for a fraction of the cost.

Commercial drones also have a far lesser chance of encountering traffic when compared to ground transportation, which could allow for more reliable, life-saving deliveries in time-sensitive scenarios.

So, when can we expect to see swarms of these unmanned aircraft flying overhead? A company called Elroy Air is leading the charge in bringing these exciting ideas to fruition.

    Somewhere someone is already thinking about autonomous pirating

  2. Derek K. on October 17, 2021 at 8:31 am

    This reads like an advertisement for the company.

    And like it was written by Ryan from the office.

    Nope not gonna happen! Current regulations say the drone has to be in line of sight of the operator at all times, not through a camera. So unless the silly rules are dropped. This is illegal.

  4. Julian on October 17, 2021 at 8:32 am

    Why the fake jet engine noises 3:46 . common man that’s just bad

  5. Raditya Oe on October 17, 2021 at 8:34 am

    20 years from now, development of this project would help human life easier

  6. snazzy sailor on October 17, 2021 at 8:34 am

    Drugs from Colombia to Europe…

  7. RavenFyre on October 17, 2021 at 8:35 am

    If you invent silent drones sure otherwise meet the same fate as the concord.

  8. Eve Angélique on October 17, 2021 at 8:35 am

    Why didn’t you mention that drone shipping of this sort is already inuse in Kenya ?

  9. C J on October 17, 2021 at 8:37 am

    Someday shipping until one of these things kills someone.

  10. importon on October 17, 2021 at 8:38 am

    This company aint gonna be the ones to do it sorry. that liftoff was sketchy

  11. Baybee K on October 17, 2021 at 8:39 am

    Its too big, it can’t land in congested cities.

  12. Turn Racing on October 17, 2021 at 8:40 am

    of course a ‘startup’ like this comes out of SF

  13. Rami Abram on October 17, 2021 at 8:41 am

    Cartels will love this drone

  14. Sin Amos on October 17, 2021 at 8:42 am

    Vapor!¡!!!!!!!

  15. F. D. on October 17, 2021 at 8:43 am

    Wow. A video to impress 1st year business school students…

  16. Ripstop Pilot on October 17, 2021 at 8:43 am

    NO. DONT WANT IT. DONT NEED IT. STOP THIS BEFORE IT OPENS DOORS FOR GOD KNOWS WHAT.

  17. quinn rooney on October 17, 2021 at 8:45 am

    Flt

  18. N K on October 17, 2021 at 8:45 am

    It seems to fail. The cost to transport a parcel with drone will cost more, than what it cost by road transport plus they will have to account for downtime of charging time of the batteries, maintenance, theft of the drone, accident, lost parcel because of navigation error to the destination etc. Businesses are built around economy not the other way round.

  19. The Edge on October 17, 2021 at 8:46 am

    Lmao Not gonna work…PEOPLE will just blow em out of the sky n swipe your package

  20. senna Silver pro on October 17, 2021 at 8:47 am

    Teleporting is the end point of travel and transportation

  21. Teofilo L on October 17, 2021 at 8:48 am

    In the alternative Youtuber’s world, everything is coming

  22. Coding Mafia on October 17, 2021 at 8:51 am

    Great idea but won’t be successful

    Saw video of other guy creating fast drones to catch/stop other drones so most of deliveries will never reach their destination

  23. James Ryzlot on October 17, 2021 at 8:53 am

    Airplanes do not fly direct A to B

    JR

  24. An Ocean On Fire on October 17, 2021 at 8:53 am

    Good luck getting this passing the FAA and CAA.
    I would love this, genuinely, but its very hard to make it legal.

  25. Bright Space on October 17, 2021 at 8:54 am

    Idk about this one.

  26. Farid Responds Is My Fav Channel on October 17, 2021 at 8:56 am

    I have a feeling by “World” they mean “US”

  27. Design & Build - TDE on October 17, 2021 at 8:57 am

    Too late, I made a teleporter and my video will be much more believable than this!

  28. Abishek Willie on October 17, 2021 at 8:58 am

    insane that was my business idea in to reality
    sad i can’t afford these things

  29. Meet Adonis on October 17, 2021 at 9:02 am

    Who did the sound design? It’s horrible! Music beat do not match with he storyline or the intentions. It’s too distracting.

  30. Andrew Erickson on October 17, 2021 at 9:04 am

    0:54 where’s your y-axis at?

  31. Othoap Proto on October 17, 2021 at 9:04 am

    we are fighting this in our community.

  32. obi-wan kenobi on October 17, 2021 at 9:05 am

    don’t support amazon commies

  33. relentlessmadman on October 17, 2021 at 9:05 am

    I remember in the 60s some one thought to use lighter than air ships to revolutionize the shipping industry! but it didn’t fly!

  34. Gen Z 21st century meme Shorts on October 17, 2021 at 9:05 am

    Guess who’s going to get acquired by Amazon

  35. Naomi Robel on October 17, 2021 at 9:09 am

    Didn’t Rwanda do this 2 years ago?

  36. Chen 1 on October 17, 2021 at 9:10 am

    actual one day shipping already realized in China, Maybe by large drone like this is first, but I am still not sure, because I saw a lot of project like that in China.

  37. Curtis Foster on October 17, 2021 at 9:11 am

    Funny…lotta skepticism in the comments, and rightfully so! But not everyone knows how much FAA, DOT, NASA, Boeing, Uber, Verizon (using their network for drone communication over long distances), Google (Alphabet), and many others have invested to facilitate startups like this actually succeeding. And the vast majority of startups in this space are no where near as far along as these guys (most quit during R&D, which can be spirit-crushing). My money is on these guys making it. There timing couldn’t be better considering the support systems being developed by others in parallel. I’m definitely a fan of what I see so far, and wish them all the best!

  38. BeachDays on October 17, 2021 at 9:13 am

    So what is the threat of electronic self-driving trucks? Has the race already been lost

  39. vishnu vichu on October 17, 2021 at 9:14 am

    Can I work with you .

  40. jimmy chonga on October 17, 2021 at 9:14 am

    I hope this fails. We really don’t need more noise and annoyance in the world. People need to reduce consumption.

  41. luderick wong on October 17, 2021 at 9:15 am

    it will become the cheapest aerial bombardment, once you get a address, you can sent any junk ads, pyrotechnics, bio hazard, chemicals to residential area in the name of delivery services. dropping of cargo and drones by accident can punch your roof and windows and you never know who did it. and it comes 24/7/365 noisy when your neighbor order pizza, leaking package of food and drinks trail the way at roof difficult to clean up and nobody admit any responsibility. not to mention they can peep your daughter’s room at 8th floor if they want to. no, not even a delivery boy to complain at. wait to see people hunt them down retaliate by jamming, nets and guns. it is a uneducated stupid idea, your convenience violates the privacy of everyone in entire area. well, you can still use it unless you live in a place with no neighbour at all. everything mention here will only apply to you and your house then.

  42. roboco302 on October 17, 2021 at 9:16 am

    This is dead in the water. Just another moron salesman taking millions of VC. OMG a drone can travel 8000 miles!!!! GFY!!!

  43. Lord Darth Vader on October 17, 2021 at 9:16 am

    As someone from a third world country. Waiting 2 months for Amazon packages to arrive is not very fun

  44. KaiLab on October 17, 2021 at 9:19 am

    People talking they would crash into building, and restricted law etc. No they wouldn’t, this is middle miles in logistics, not first or last miles that they have to fly over the cities.
    I think this project have a long way to go but they would succeed when they can optimize the business model by applying automation, hydrogen fuel…

  45. DEAFPV on October 17, 2021 at 9:20 am

    Great engineering but horrible concept. With the autonomous electric vehicle industry being decades ahead of these last mile drone startups it’ll be a long time before this is viable. Good Luck! Who funds stuff like this?

  46. Selim Kaptan on October 17, 2021 at 9:20 am

    Fraud

  47. Banzai Will on October 17, 2021 at 9:21 am

    Just watched a video about water being the life blood of civilization. Now I hear same day shipping is. 🙄 Imagine my surprise…

  48. Freethink on October 17, 2021 at 9:26 am

    Do you think drone shipping will take off?

  49. Abderrahim Acheban on October 17, 2021 at 9:27 am

    Like whaaaaat, this vid is on fire 🔥🔥

  50. Barbados on October 17, 2021 at 9:28 am

    This is an absolutely terrible idea and it should be banned. You are creating the testing platform for the military to develop drone tech to be ised agaibst people
