The service is called Amazon Prime Air, and the company pretty much has it ready to go, pending FAA regulations. As long as April Fool’s Day didn’t come four months early, Amazon appears to be serious. The company has been working on it in its R&D lab.

I like how the guy at the end seems disinterested that there’s a drone leaving him a package.

“Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations,” says Amazon. “It looks like science fiction, but it’s real. From a technology point of view, we’ll be ready to enter commercial operations as soon as the necessary regulations are in place. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is actively working on rules for unmanned aerial vehicles.”
