Sunday night, online retail giant Amazon announced that they will soon offer a service called Prime Air in which a drone delivers packages under 5 pounds to a home within an hour or less, according to the LA Times. See the video to the left about how this service works. The news about the Amazon Prime Air has created an Internet buzz Monday morning.

Sunday night, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos appeared on CBS’ "60 Minutes" and explained how Amazon Prime Air service works and showed the short 80 second video. The video shows a man ordering something on his iPad and then it jumps to an Amazon warehouse and is picked up by the Amazon Prime Air drone and flies to the house of the person who made the order. Then the Amazon Prime Air drone quietly dropped the package on the ground outside the home.

Amazon has always been known for its quick delivery system, but the Amazon Prime Air delivery system takes this to a whole new level. The Amazon website states that the Amazon Prime Air system will become the way things are delivered in the future.

"Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance the technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations," read a statement from Amazon.
