Wave of the future, dudes? Your ganji delivered by Google drone?

Google tests drone deliveries in Project Wing trials

Google has built and tested autonomous aerial vehicles, which it believes could be used for goods deliveries. The project is being developed at Google X, the company's clandestine tech research arm, which is also responsible for its self-driving car. Project Wing has been running for two years, but was a secret until now. Google said that its long-term goal was to develop drones that could be used for disaster relief by delivering aid to isolated areas.

 Amazon had announced that it was looking at using drones for deliveries.

The trouble right now is that this is not Nam. There are rules Dude.
Here in NY state the laws are very uptight.
Recently a photographer got in trouble for using a drone to photograph a wedding.
(the fact it was a Gay wedding might have played a part in the trouble)

Privacy, paranoia and possibly some possible air traffic interference ( birds, planes, and storms) are probably behind the advancement of this field of delivery. But when it happens boy oh boy. I still smoke my j's manually.

In the Netherlands, they train eagles (not THE eagles), to take out drones. Imagine if your stash of primo doobage, got taken out by some nihilist sniffer bird?!

I love birds of prey, but that'd make me hate 'em, (fuckers!).
