Submission + - Domino's Tests Drone Pizza Delivery (

redletterdave writes: Domino's plan to start delivering pizzas with drones may be a PR stunt, and it's certainly not an immediate reality since the FAA currently bans UAVs for commercial purposes, and has done so since 2007 (after all, itâ(TM)s not unreasonable to want to prevent flying robots from whizzing by peopleâ(TM)s heads just to deliver tacos and pizza and lobster rolls). But Domino's video and press release do raise a number of interesting questions about drones that certainly need to be addressed, especially considering how the FAA predicts there will be 30,000 drones patrolling the skies in the U.S. alone by 2020.
