Although Amazon is facing many regulatory hurdles, the patents that the company has submitted show that it is very seriously pursuing the idea of using drones for product delivery.
Amazon is leading the effort to convince the US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) to approve widespread commercial use of drones.
According to the plans, Amazon's drones will be able to update their routes in real-time. A mock-up delivery screen suggests that people will be able to choose from a variety of delivery options - from "bring it to me" to nominating their home, place of work or even "my boat" as places for packages to be dropped.
