Octocopter Makes Domino's Pizza Delivery In England
This is a brief video from Domino's of an octocopter delivering two pizzas to a man in England. Allegedly it really happened, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was all staged like the moon landing or that "Mars rover" NASA is driving around the New Mexico desert.
The drone in question, called the Domicopter, flew two large pepperoni pizzas over 4 miles of English country-side in a 10-minute flight, through the city of Guildford, out side London. Some may complain that it is cloudy with a chance of pizza but that's just what your neighbor signed up for mate. It's interesting to know how this could be hawk-proof or crow-proof, but a delicious pizza, delivered through the air could not only save time for delivery but also reduce manpower significantly.
First of all, flying pizza delivery will never work because people will shoot them down. Hell, I'd shoot down a robotic octocopter WITHOUT a pizza payload. The pizza is just a bonus. *opening pizza bag* Wait -- no Cinna Stix? YA'LL NEVER HEARD OF A MEAL-DEAL? This is some bullshit.
Hit the jump for the video.
Thanks to Gary, Dr Fink and victor, who prefer their pizzas delivered the old fashioned way: guaranteed in 30-minutes or less.
