Yes, I know! I am late with this! I’ve been busy but since Waterstones produced such a funny reply to Amazon’s idea, I had to post it!
So Amazon is planning to use robotic drones to deliver people’s packages to them. Maybe a publicity stunt for Cyber Monday yesterday but if you want more information, have a look at the BBC News article about it here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-25180906
Many other retailers might shrug this off and carry on with business. Not Waterstones though, no. They posted a video about their new delivery system: O.W.L.S., Ornithological Waterstones Landing Service. Have a look:
