Wouldn't it be nice to have an ordered packaged delivered to your doorstep within 30 minutes from the time you ordered it, and have it personally delivered by a flying drone. No, this is not an idea from a sci-fi movie. According to Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO for Amazon, the world's largest online retailer, this is a program that his company is working on now.

This program was revealed to viewers watching "60 Minutes" on CBS Sunday night. According Bezos, Amazon is planning on having this project in "the air" in several years. For more information on the project, watch the video, and you be the judge if you think it will be possible, or even feasible to use drones for delivery, and who will be in control of their air space? How would the safety of commercial flights taking off and landing be effected by thousands of small airborne drones? There are many, many questions that will have to be answered before this becomes a reality.
