I love the idea!! How awesome would that be?!

I can't see it working though, unfortunately. I bet its SO expensive to receive a parcel in that way. I would imagine alot of parcels will end up in the wrong place and maybe even lost! Can never predict what could potentially get in the way of that copter! x

Saw this a few days ago. It sounds good in theory but you just know it'd be a disaster!
It looks like something that in the future could actually be really good. For example delivering to you directly when you're not at home etc.

How would they protect it from thieves though?

It looks fab!

But I agree potentially there could be a LOT of problems.

Not sure I'd be happy with unmanned drones zooming around everywhere. Are they going to stick to flying above roads or will you be out in your garden and see them flying right above you? It sounds open to abuse too... and paves the way for 'security drones' flying around watching people, not to mention the way criminals could potentially use the idea of drones becoming a common sight.

I'd much prefer this:

They could probably do it more secure than that by linking it to the account (thinking along the lines of what Natwest do with their card readers). However a thief would probably just smash shite out of the box either way!

Shel I was thinking that!
"Option one: 3-5 days delivery - free
Option two - 30 minute delivery by quad copter - 50"

Definitely and bet its not available to NI customers either, would be a long trip for the quad copter.
