"Just imagine a last-second, Christmas-morning delivery from Amazon via a Prime Air Drone?"
I quicker imagine a situation where you have a lady-friend over for a lovely evening, but forgot to bring the required ingredients to see the entire evening through. Order supplies on Amazon, and boom, night saved.
That's pretty amazing stuff right there, if they can pull it off. I wonder though, how the radio control will work. Must be some sort of advanced GPS guided delivery system.

Brilliant. Would be fun to sit outside with a shotgun and pick them off as they fly over.
Possible downside to filling the friendly skies with shipping drones? Skeet-shooters. Thought-pattern: "I wonder how many of them there flyin' boxes I can pick-off with this here rifle in 30 seconds? Let's have a competition! "
Next up: Amazon Transporters. As Captain Jean-Luc Picard would say, "Make it so, Number 1".
I would guess that would only be an option in major hubs like N.Y., L.A. etc., I don't see them delivering to the Pocono's in 30 minutes or less.
This is my Sig. There are many like it but this one is mine.
Ow my brain.
A few things that come to mind:
1. I think only cities that have Amazon Warehouses would utlize this Prime Air feature... I mean how would they manage to deliver in under 30mins to places via copter?
2. Imagine how many people would shoot that thing down... lol; or worse, the copter becomes defective mid-flight.
3. Now... would be awesome if Amazon somehow utilizes GPS signals of phones during ordering and can ship that package to where the phone is. [Piece of tech we would have to wait for]. As a cyclist, this would definitely benefit me if I happen to get multiple flats on a long-long ride.
4. Other than that, GREAT idea! :D
neat idea, hope it works out well. I would like to see this done well around where I am since at work we order lots of items from them and most if not all we try to get via prime selection.
Can we say ( the jetsons )
