Encroaching on Santa’s Territory?!


 

Not so sure about this. I suppose this is mainly for people who live in rural areas. Given all the problems the U.S.A. has I can see the drones being shot down or confiscated by the police or the FBI/CIA.  Also would not this be competition to the United States Postal Service, UPS and Fed Ex??  I suppose the drones could be used in war zones to get humanitarian help to people in distress, illness or having medical emergencies.  Better than Carrier Pigeons but still iffy in my book.

I have a feeling Santa Claus may object and Rudolph #1 Reindeer will be put off!! They might start attacking the drones!!

For all my Followers/Subscribers in The United Kingdom/Great Britain Please share your thoughts.  I want to hear from you!

  1. Not a Brit – but this brings to MY mind the beginning of that prescient Jetson** cartoon show — 3D bumper-to-bumper air traffic, door to skyrise balcony.

    And ALL in the name of making sure that those who can afford it can spend money faster. Aah! Corporate capitalism at it’s finest, with Amazon leading the way. Oh goodie.

    Doubt I’ll be much of a fan of drone usage for this purpose.

    **For you kiddies reading who don’t get the reference: the Jetsons was a cartoon produced in the very early 60s by Hanna-Barbera, set way into the future — piggybacking on the popularity of the cave-man inspired Flintstones, which took to the air in 1960. I’m sure you can find something on YouTube if you’re curious.

      1. Wait! Made a mistake Dino belonged to Fred and Wilma Flintstone. I don’t think the Rubbles had a pet. I know in later show spin-offs they had Pebbles and Bam Bam get married. Personally I did not like when they had the kids grown up. Too corny. I like the original TV cartoon show.

  2. Is the 400 metre limit an aviation requirement? I wonder what that idyllic countryside will look like with hundreds of drones flitting backwards and forwards 24 hours /day? Not a pleasant thought.

    1. Not sure about the limit. That kinda stuff goes over my head. Maybe Amazon thought is was safer to beta test it in the English countryside. Who knows? I just thought the whole idea was so weird.

      1. I don’t know whether I’m out of touch or drones just haven’t made it to Australia in a big way yet, but no idea where you’d buy one. But after watching that incredible photography-by-drone video, I’m drooling at the idea of being able to see through the ‘eyes’ of a drone. The vistas were simply breathtaking.
