Delivery drones are coming: Jeff Bezos promises half-hour shipping with Amazon Prime Air
“Jeff Bezos is nothing if not a showman. Amazon’s CEO loves a good reveal, and took the opportunity afforded by a 60 Minutes segment to show off his company’s latest creation: drones that can deliver packages up to 5 pounds to your house in less than half an hour. They’re technically octocopters, as part of a program called “Amazon Prime Air.”

Domestic-Drone Industry Prepares for Big Battle With Regulators
“There’s been a lot of hype around unmanned drones becoming a fixture over U.S. airspace, both forlaw enforcement use and for operations by businesses as varied as farmers and filmmakers. All have big implications for traditional conceptions of privacy, as unmanned planes can loiter over people’s backyards and snap pictures for far longer than piloted aircraft.”

Drone Hijacking? That’s Just the Start of GPS Troubles
On the evening of June 19, a group of researchers from the University of Texas successfully hijacked a civilian drone at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico during a test organized by the Department of Homeland Security.

Domestic Drones
“U.S. law enforcement is greatly expanding its use of domestic drones for surveillance. Routine aerial surveillance would profoundly change the character of public life in America.”

Game Changers: The Future of GPS
“As one of the world’s leading experts on GPS technology, Dr. Humphreys caught the attention of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for his recent research on defending against intentional GPS jamming of drones over U.S. airspace.”

Integration of Civil Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in the National Airspace System (NAS) Roadmap
“Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and operations have significantly increased in number, technical complexity, and
sophistication during recent years without having the same history of compliance and oversight as manned aviation.”

FAA Releases New Drone List—Is Your Town on the Map?
“The Federal Aviation Administration has finally released a new drone authorization list.”

  2. Mason Krause on September 15, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    What if you orderA drone and then the Amazon drone delivers your drone to your house and then your neighbors flying a drone and then your other neighbors flying a drone flying a drone with another controller flying a drone

  3. 16nowhereman on September 15, 2021 at 11:28 pm

  4. 許進曾 on September 15, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Now its 2019 we still have not seen drone delivery.

  5. Dan Kelly on September 15, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    What the hell is it with science stuff being presented by arts and entertainment people?

  6. Satish Soni on September 15, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Its 2019 and no drone deliveries for me yet. I am Amazon prime member.

  7. Joe Piervincenti on September 15, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Well seeker, maybe you can order a human being owner’s manual from Amazon so that you could learn how to be a person.

  8. PlanetTech on September 15, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    It’s 2018 now still nothing

  9. Humayun Habib Ulrich Ikram on September 15, 2021 at 11:35 pm

  11. Naso4265 on September 15, 2021 at 11:38 pm

  12. Im_Zee11 on September 15, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Just have a robo car deliver it and then you come out and pop the truck. Just schedule it when your home. Ohhh I like that!

  13. EPIC50CAL on September 15, 2021 at 11:40 pm

  22. vinny riskyy on September 15, 2021 at 11:47 pm


  23. Kosar Gaming on September 15, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Who else would try to take down the drone and keep it if they bring it down 😙

  24. Topspeedsnaker on September 15, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    The basic problems people worry about can be fixed quite easily, these drones will be the main delivery service by 2025 for sure. Things like complicated addresses won’t be an issue with 1 to 1 connection between the customer and the drone AI. It could meet you on the nearest street to your house for example if it was having exact location issues and you would be able to see it’s location at all times. Faster, cheaper, more efficient it’s the same direction all industry’s are headed. Less cars etc on the road too. I think it’ll be pretty common even before 2025.

  25. 12 Talks on September 15, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    2018 still doesn’t exist. R.I.P.

  26. Dan Richter on September 15, 2021 at 11:51 pm

  30. Francisco Neto on September 15, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Some people got a secret kick out of raining on other people’s parade. If it depended on them, we would still be making arrows out of stone.

  31. Eileen Dover on September 15, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    2018 drowns still aren’t here

  32. Austin Moon on September 16, 2021 at 12:00 am

  33. Lisa Adler on September 16, 2021 at 12:00 am

    You’re an idiot! The same bs government regulations that don’t want me putting on my makeup on the 101 while my Tesla gets me to work. Stupid government regulations. Trump will open up these regulations

  34. TopGoose on September 16, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Well that with cost well: THATS ALOTA DAMUAGE

  35. Pure Savage on September 16, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Dude it’s 2017 and I still haven’t seen these 😢

  36. jcc2c22 on September 16, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Old video and this guy is wrong. Amazon got FAA approval for their drone deliveries this past August, technology on the drones has far advanced since 2015 and Amazon is field testing their drone delivery. I think it will be fairly widespread and in use within 5 years.

  37. YoSnxwzy - on September 16, 2021 at 12:03 am

    2017 now almost 2018 and we still don’t have them LMAO!!!

  40. ARIES MIGHT on September 16, 2021 at 12:06 am

    I recently had a Maytag dishwasher. Fall out of the sky and land on my head. The attorneys that are representing amazon said. That I could keep it as well as amazon. Will include a free three year extended warranty. As a settlement I am still mulling it over.

  41. Gavin Hershberger on September 16, 2021 at 12:07 am

    I just hope it’s a option for drones to deliver packages by drone

  42. dead money on September 16, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Bruh it’s already 2018

  43. keerthan vudutha on September 16, 2021 at 12:14 am

  46. tony webster on September 16, 2021 at 12:17 am

    What if one lands at a park? A dog will think it’s a frisbee. Flying over golf courses will be a problem.

  47. snazztacular on September 16, 2021 at 12:17 am

  48. Charles Roy Dubuc on September 16, 2021 at 12:19 am

  49. Woaksksk Kwkwskksk on September 16, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Why did I have to see a Barbie advertisement before this video

  50. macelius on September 16, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Uninformed video, lacking understanding of the technology, even for the time. Desperately needs updating..
