It’s not just Pizzas that will be delivered in 30 minutes or less!  Ever stop to think about how packages are delivered? There’s the mailman who drops it in your mailbox. There’s the UPS man who brings it to your door. Bigger packages, well, cargo ships drop those o at the docks. But how about if we told you that packages can soon be delivered to you by these little four-propeller airplane-like things called drones? We’ve talked about these things before and how they’ve gained in popularity both as toys and as things professionals use to make movies. But the latest is from Amazon. com, a giant online retailer who wants to use drones to deliver packages to you! What would this look like? You make an order online for something like a pack of stickers, and within

30 minutes a drone delivers it to your doorstep. Cool, right? We think so. But before you start looking up at the sky for one of these things, they first have to be approved by the government. See, drones make the government nervous, so until they have fully tested them out and pulled together a set of rules for how companies can use them, these little drones won’t be ready for action. But don’t worry, when they are ready, we’ll be sure to let you know! In the meantime, think about how you’d use a drone. Here at Xyza, we’d probably use drones to deliver Xyza newspapers. Now, that’s a good drone.
