Amazon Delivery Drone Concept Unveiled, Gets Parody Twitter Account

Amazon Prime Air

Amazon is thinking outside of the box when it comes to the future of shipping, and tonight on 60 Minutes, CEO Jeff Bezos revealed a delivery drone.

An octocopter, it’s capable of carrying up to five pounds for a 10 mile roundtrip, and delivering a package in 30 minutes or less.

Called Amazon Prime Air, Bezos says the next generation shipping service could be available to customers in four to five years, and enter testing as early as 2015 depending on FAA approval.

Shortly after the segment aired on 60 Minutes, @AmazonDrone was created to poke some fun at the idea.

There were also a couple tweets deleted shortly after posting:

Some Twitter users feel the delivery drone concept is a PR stunt so Amazon can make more money on Cyber Monday.

Do you welcome the idea of Amazon delivery drones on your doorstep?
