What a time to be alive. The future is now finally here and it is delicious. Domino’s pizza is now delivering pizza via drones. Can worldpeace be far behind?
Domino’s has teamed up with drone-maker Flirtey to deliver fresh, hot pizzas via autonomous drones. They just conducted their first successful delivery tests in New Zealand earlier this week.
Domino’s is currently only delivering pizza via drone to select households in the area of New Zealand that they’re testing this service in, so the rest of us will have to wait. This is the first time that pizzas have been delivered to customers through the air. It is a historic moment. The drone that’s being used is the Flirtey DRU Drone, and it features direct integration with Domino’s own GPS and online-ordering systems. The drone is made of 3D-printed components, carbon fiber, and aluminium. The pizzas are lowered via a tether system, and if the DRU Drone’s battery runs low or if it loses its GPS signal, it has a built-in safety feature that forces it to either find a safe place to land or to return home.
This means that very soon we could all be getting our pizza via drone. Awesome! I am glad to be a part of this moment in time.
