Amazon introduces a new delivery system called Prime Air, with the intended goal of delivering packages in 30 minutes or less using drones. Here's the piece from 60 Minutes. Here's an article by ZDNet. And this is a very interesting debuking of Amazon's show-off.

We're excited to share Prime Air - something the team has been working on in our next generation R&D lab. The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers' hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles. Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations. This is footage from a recent test flight.
