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.”

    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.

  17. Dan Kelly on December 1, 2020 at 9:44 pm

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

  18. Gavin Hershberger on December 1, 2020 at 9:44 pm

  22. Joe Piervincenti on December 1, 2020 at 9:57 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.

  41. Francisco Neto on December 1, 2020 at 10:14 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.

  42. Ryan Burns on December 1, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    they already started using it so it does work

  43. Dan Richter on December 1, 2020 at 10:16 pm

  44. NutsinBrazil on December 1, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Well, I’m watching this in 2017 and still no drone delivery…

  45. Pure Savage on December 1, 2020 at 10:17 pm

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

  46. EPIC50CAL on December 1, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Man were you wrooooooooooong lmao

  47. jcc2c22 on December 1, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    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.

  48. Topspeedsnaker on December 1, 2020 at 10:22 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.

  49. Kosar Gaming on December 1, 2020 at 10:23 pm

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

  50. will Grello on December 1, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    i promise you it will work. and delivery jobs will be gone this is a really dumb video.
