We should be reaching out with both arms to embrace the future promised by ye mighty advancer Amazon Prime Air. Figure-headed by beacon of joy, hope and gladness Jeremy Clarkson, this is a future that promises all the glory of instant delivery services for size three Puma EvoPOWER firm ground soccer shoes if you live within 15 miles of the nearest depot.
Amazon Prime’s current delivery service forces customers to wait until ‘tomorrow’ or, God forbid, venture to the high street. Britain’s patience has been tested to the limit, and this new fleet of delivery drones will undoubtedly provide us all with an unparalleled peace of mind that a replacement for whatever the dog has eaten is only a few clicks and a cup of tea away.
But aside from the foreseeable delight for millions around the country, it’s clear from the latest advert that Prime Air also promises to transform Britain’s skyline. I’m particularly thrilled by the potential of these machines becoming a stand-out feature of the British landscape, so I thought I’d create some images give you a snap shot of this sublime future:
UK regulations currently make the e-commerce giant’s vision a little tricky – drones are required by law to be within the eye-line of pilots and not fly without a license over populated areas – but surely the Civil Aviation Authority will give after a few fine dining experiences on Amazon’s last quarter revenues of $25.36bn.
