Submission + - Tacocopter Startup To Deliver Tacos Using Drones (

Jeremiah Cornelius writes: "Do You Want Fry and Leela with That?" Dept.
If you live near Silicon Valley, and have a smartphone, then SkyNet is about to serve your lunch. In a private beta, Tacocopter will take your order and deliver to you by drone. Make sure you allow location awareness for their app: with the aid of your mobile's GPS, you'll have guacamole delivered with the accuracy of a Hellfire missle. The Huffington Post manages to sum this: "perhaps the next great startup out of Silicon Valley, which boasts a business plan that combines four of the most prominent touchstones of modern America: tacos, helicopters, robots and laziness." They forgot to note when talking to founder Star Simpson, that she was the geek gal from MIT's Personal Robots Group, who's LED t-shirt caused a TSA ruckus, a few years ago.
