Introduced almost exactly two years ago to the day and widely seen as a prank, Amazon has made good on its promise of airborne delivery drones straight out of the future. In its latest update, ex-Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson narrates a typical household drama that is easily and efficiently solved with an Amazon Prime Air drone delivery, which promises a delivery time of 30 minutes, made possible by the drone’s capabilities to fly a distance of 15 miles at a speed of over 55 mph. Whereas the drone’s first iteration was a quadcopter design, this vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) configuration makes possible the drone’s higher speeds, while also increasing its footprint by quite a bit.
