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."

A drone sits at the end of a conveyer belt, waiting to pick up a package — Bezos says 86 percent of Amazon's packages are under 5 pounds — and can carry them up to 10 miles from the fulfillment center. As soon as Amazon can work out the regulations and figure out how to prevent your packages from being dropped on your head from above, Bezos promised, there will be a fleet of shipping drones taking the sky.

Won't happen. Too many problems.

People will shoot them down, kids will snag them, someone will get hurt and sue, they'll mess up power lines, cause traffic accidents, too much potential for terrorism ....blah, blah, blah....

They have drones that fly around other drones and override the signals and make it go whete they want. Only a fool would trust a drone to deliver anything of value.
