Amazon to Deliver products by Drone

Posted: Updated:

 

Amazon wants to deliver your next order by drone! 
A new delivery service called "Prime Air" uses unmanned drones for deliveries.
In an interview on 60 minutes, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos says the drones will be ready in 4 or 5 years.
FAA rule changes could make the flights legal as soon as 2015.
The octocopters Amazon would use are currently in testing.
They can only carry packages which weigh up to 5 pounds, but amazon says 90% of the packages it deliveries weigh less than that.
