    UPS tests show delivery drones still need work

    "On a blueberry farm outside of Tampa, Florida, on Monday, UPS tested the use of drones for residential delivery for the first time."

    The drone successfully delivered an order of pancakes and sausage before moving on to its next destination.:oops:

    Seriously, those drones are amazing and scary at the same time. On the news I observed a drone shooting flames at an electrical pole, to clean the trash off of it. Must have been even more so to watch in person.
