Amazon has showed off a new prototype drone it hopes to use to deliver small packages to customers in fewer than 30 minutes. Unlike a previous demonstration offered by Amazon that showed packages being carried below the drone, the new video shows the prototype accepting a package into its fuselage before delivery.
Presented by former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson (who is working on a show for Amazon), the two-minute video takes us through the entire process, from ordering, to warehouse launch, to delivery. ”In time there will be a whole family of Amazon drones, different designs for different environments,” says Jeremy Clarkson.
Aimed at the UK, here is a kewtsy intro that suggests how Amazon might bring their drone service to market. Don’t miss the two-minute video with UK TV star and now Amazon spokes and streaming personality Jeremy Clarkson. More about him in Re/code.
