Advancing technology could make a large impact on our lives
I like the idea of Amazon.com delivering their products with drones [“Amazon delivers some pie in the sky with drones plan,” Business Dec. 3].
It is a unique idea that allows me to order something on Amazon and see it delivered as soon as 30 minutes later. However, I can also see many things that could go wrong with this idea.
I don’t know if I should trust drones to deliver my products because drones couldn’t operate under all weather conditions. The packages could be a target for thieves who could watch where the drones flew. If drones are being used to deliver products, the sky would be filled with drones.
Drones could also damage the products they’re carrying if they don’t work properly. Birds could attack them, and dogs could chase them until the drones landed.
Also, how would this work during big holidays when many deliveries would be made? There might be chaos because Amazon would have to control remotely so many drones. Hackers would have a field day.
Even so, I am looking forward to seeing how this technology will work.
