There was an exciting buzz in the air when Amazon announced their plans to introduce the use of octocopters a.k.a. drones to deliver items to consumers, only to find that the technology would be available in four or five years time. The Amazon drones will apparently be capable of delivering packages up to five pounds (86 percent of orders are apparently less than that), with the aim of getting them to your house in under half an hour. Netflix in the meantime have decided to take a jab at Amazon by releasing a spoof video to promote their faux service called “Drone 2 Home”.
Netflix DVD division manager Hank Breeggemann claims the technology will allow customers to get the DVD they rent on the same day they order it, he says:
“That’s right. Our fleet of high-tech drones will deliver your disc to you within mere seconds of you adding it to your queue,”
“Unlike other companies trying to rush unproven technology to market, we have literally spent days working out most of the bugs,”
The hilarious clip features their “remarkable” drones as they crash into walls and deliver packages at the most unlikely places.
