Drones

Today, Dominos announced its partnership with drone delivery company Flirtey to trial its drone pizza delivery service in Auckland, apparently "the first commercial drone delivery service in the world".  “New Zealand has the most forward-thinking aviation regulations in the world, and with our new partnership with the leader in pizza delivery worldwide, Domino’s, we are uniquely positioned to bring the same revolutionary drone delivery service to customers globally," Flirtey CEO Matt Sweeny said in a press release.  “We are getting closer to the time where you can push a button on your smartphone and have Domino's delivered by drone to your home.”  Dominos and Flirtey showed off with a test flight today but you'll have to wait for the Civil Aviation Authority to approve the trial before you'll be able to get a slice of droned delivered pizza. So, while we wait for the slow wheels of bureaucracy to turn, we re-heat our look at some non-pizza-related uses of drones from last year. Enjoy.
