DRONE Delivery good or bad ?

DRONE DELIVERY hits hurdles in Australia

Perhaps most of us have yet to encounter DRONES in one form or another. The only ones i was faced with were geeks playing around and taking pics of people in their private enviroment. I found that it was an invasion into my privacy and wanted to shoot down this bloody noisy thing that was flashing 4 red lights. Here is what Aussie's plan after they had enough of Google's testing

Google has just completed a year-long test program for a drone delivery system in Australia – and has applied to launch the world's first commercial delivery drone operation this summer, Down Under. However, the locals aren't pleased.

The story of the blood delivery drones of Rwanda is a fascinating one. It's an amazing use of technology; you should watch it if you have never heard of it before. You will be impressed.

It will achieve the same fate as self-driving cars. Somebody will use it as a weapon against which there appears to be little or no defense.

I think it will happen. It is just a matter of when.

They need a very sophisticated system to stop collisions.

If people in one place are opposed. Google may go to another place and offer some benefits to the community, so they will accept it with open arms.

All I can think of when I read about drone delivery systems, especially the one Amazon is proposing, is that I can see the catapult (slingshot) making a comeback.

I wouldn't mind pizzas being delivered to my 5th floor balcony.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.
