  • Aussie start-up to launch drone delivery service

    I can just imagine what might happen to these 'drones' if they can be tracked;

    Australian start-ups Zookal and Flirtey have teamed up to offer what they say would be a world-first service: textbook delivery via drone.

    If regulators give the green light, from March of next year Sydney students can order books from Zookal using their smartphones and have a Flirtey drone drop them off at their doorsteps. Customers will also be able to track the delivery in real time using a Google map.

    I might be 'shooting' them with a cam... others, well a good sling shot...

        That appears to be a very local service ... like within a few meters of the person wielding the radio control. ... not at all like the ones being flown in Afghanistan to deliver other stuff.
