Amazon delivery drones coming to a neighbourhood near you?
Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos has announced to the world his company’s audacious plan to deliver its products to consumers via so-called “octocopters” — a type of drone that could carry anything up to five pounds within a 10-mile radius of an Amazon fulfillment centre.
B.C. has a fulfillment centre on Annacis Island, just south of Vancouver, making the futuristic vision a possibility here too.
The CBC's Dan Burritt looks at how the Amazon drone operation might work locally — and what the hurdles to success would be.
