You order a taco from your smart phone, so the restaurant has your GPS location and dispatches a drone to deliver it.

Way cool... Or is this a step towards Skynet?

I like radio control flying things as much as anyone, but the idea of drones in commercial use makes me a little uneasy.

This is the future of Netflix as well if data caps become mainstream.

They should sell gyros, not tacos! I'd buy one.

Maybe they can get it working with roombas first, then work their way up to airborne foods. The roombas would deliver pizzas, of course
