Amazon is currently testing delivering packages using drones, its CEO said during a television interview on Sunday.
Jeff Bezos revealed on American television station CBS that the drones would be able to deliver packages up to 2.3 kg, representing 86% of what Amazon delivers.
“I know this looks like science fiction. It’s not,” said Bezos as he took the television crew into the project test room. “We can do half-hour delivery.”
The drones, called “octocopters” by Amazon, are powered by an electric motor and can operate within a 16km radius of the distribution centres.
