Perhaps “drone” isn’t the best word for this near-instant delivery technology. I’ve been waiting for my own flying car since I watched “The Jetsons” as a youth. Looks like that may be on the horizon. A U.S. aerospace firm is designing a vehicle that drives like a car, takes off like a helicopter and flies like a plane. Terrafugia’s TF-X is scheduled for delivery in 2015.
So, how about a cool name for the delivery drones, like maybe “RoboDrop” or “iDeliver” or maybe just “Rosie”, like the robot housekeeper in “The Jetsons”. Flying robots that speed delivery of goods to consumers deserve a better brand name than “drones”. Anyone agree or have other suggestions? Leave them in my comments!
