The future is now, friends. You know how Amazon wants to do a drone delivery service? Boeing revealed that they would like to partner with Amazon after unveiling their drone prototype. It’s HUGE – about the size of an above-ground swimming pool, weighing 750 pounds and able to carry up to 500 pounds! Packages under 5 pounds make up 90% of Amazon’s sales, so partnering with Boeing will allow drones to potentially carry up to 100 packages!
In other techie-news, General Motors announced the potential launch of self-driving cars by 2019.
The scary thing about these vehicles? They will have NO manual controls.. no steering wheel, no gas pedal, and no manual brakes. So, if something goes wrong, you can’t take-over. Also, word is that you can’t take these cars anywhere you want.. they can only travel through pre-mapped areas that allow for the hands-free function. But if that’s the case… why would you take out all of the manual functions? Cars that drive themselves are pretty rad, it’s very futuristic, but guaranteed they are gunna cost a pretty penny and you can’t even take them everywhere!
