Amazon Prime Air


We’re excited to share Prime Air — something the team has been working on in our next generation R&D lab.

The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers’ hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles.

Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance the technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations.

This feels too futuristic. It feels like an April Fools prank four months early. They say 2015, but it doesn’t feel like it’ll ever actually happen.
