Amazon Expands Drone Delivery Testing to a Big State

Amazon , which has been talking of “investing in drone technology” for years, recently announced that residents of Lockeford, California would be the first to receive their online orders by drone. “For these deliveries, the drone will fly to the designated delivery location, descend to the customer’s backyard, and hover at a safe height,” Amazon said at the time. While the announcement was made on June 13, Amazon is yet to name the exact day that someone from Lockeford will be able to order, say, some dish soap or a camera tripod and have it drop from the sky and on their lawn.
