So Amazon is working on delivery by drone. I guess the online store which revolutionized the retail industry has decided to go after the one low tech part left of them: Delivery of goods by truck. Isn’t it more efficient to have robots do that? And even if it isn’t more efficient, isn’t it much cooler?
Science fiction never get things right. I mean, I guess it was right about Skynet, but they assumed the military would develop it when instead it’s going to be made by an online retailer. And that’s much scarier, because now Skynet will know exactly where each of us live, and, by analyzing our purchasing habits, know all our individual weaknesses.
Then again, think of the convenience of getting anything you order from Amazon in only 30 minutes. That’s well worth the risk of the destruction of mankind.
