Consumer drones can do a lot more than just capture images and videos from the air. They can also be used for different tasks including picking up an order from KFC, for example.
A New Zealander by the name of Ollie Mason-Clarke, who runs the King of Cheat Meals page on Facebook, wanted to eat at KFC but didn’t want to drive across town to visit the restaurant. He called up a local KFC, placed an order, and said that his drone will pick it up for him. Ollie then sent the flying device to the restaurant and landed it in the drive-through lane, where a KFC employee attached the order to the drone. After that, the drone took off and delivered the food back to Ollie’s house. You can check out the entire video below.
JD.com, a Chinese online retailer, has even more ambitious plans than Amazon. The company has recently announced it’s developing heavy-duty drones that can deliver payloads that weigh one ton or even more.
