While most are still busy trying to work out same-day shipping, Amazon is already working on half-hour shipping. Amazing.

Delivery drones are coming: Jeff Bezos promises half-hour shipping with Amazon Prime Air

Amazon’s CEO loves a good reveal, and took the opportunity afforded by a 60 Minutes segment to show off his company’s latest creation: drones that can deliver packages up to five pounds, to your house in less than half an hour. They’re technically octocopters, as part of a program called “Amazon Prime Air.” A drone sits at the end of a conveyer belt, waiting to pick up a package — Bezos says 86 percent of Amazon’s packages are under five pounds — and can carry them up to ten miles from the fulfillment center.
