Amazon Makes First Delivery By Drone

Amazon is changing the way it delivers packages in a very unique way.

On December 7th, 2016 the first delivery was made by drone in the United Kingdom when a package containing popcorn and an Amazon Fire TV Stick left Cambridge and made it’s drop off 13 minutes later.

A video was released by Amazon showing the drone’s journey from the warehouse where it began to the home of the first customer.

Amazon promises to have deliveries made in as little as 30 minutes, all of which are made by autonomous drones, which have no need for a human pilot.

The packages must weigh 5.7 pounds or less and the drones will travel 400 feet or less above the ground. There is still no word when Amazon will begin this venture in North America.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos confirmed the delivery with a tweet:
