Amazon tests delivery by drone, says founder Jeff Bezos

Amazon is testing delivery packages using drones, chief executive and founder Jeff Bezos said on Sunday on the CBS television programme “60 Minutes.”

Mr Bezos said the drones, unmanned vehicles that fly through the air, could deliver packages that weigh up to five pounds (2.3kg).

That represents roughly 86pc of packages that Amazon delivers, he said.

The drones, which would pick up items from Amazon’s distribution centres and fly them to customer’s homes, probably won’t be put into use for four or five years, Bezos said.

Here’s the video of how it works.
