You may wonder why Amazon is investing in drones for small package deliveries but the truth is that online shopping has grown so much that it was almost expected, at least by the vast majority of futurists. Google and UPS are also looking for drones. Just think of the change in our everyday lives (and skies) knowing that UPS alone delivers more than 4 billion packages per year!
So, it is not strange at all, better, it is rather urgent for most large e-commerce companies to leave behind all fashion-like commerce and think of new ways to satisfy their demanding and ever-growing audience.
Futurists may always dream big, however, after Amazon’s delivery drones announcement, suddenly everything seems feasible. Science fiction scenarios were never as inspiring and possible as today. If you are wondering what else you will possibly welcome in your life in the very near future, scientists are not too far from the massive production of items of extraordinary technology for the needs of commerce and maybe our everyday lives:
You may have seen a few futuristic places to shop but that’s nothing compared to the possibilities of the future. Scientists are now more than ready to start building armies of robots and autonomous vehicles for deliveries while jet drones (instead of electric powered), still in a research phase, however, their possibilities are endless since they can travel great distances to deliver orders, even across countries.
As for the Internet Of Things theory, regarding e-commerce, a truly connected home with devices that will always be online, exchanging data that will make them more responsive to your needs is not too far!
