It's the stuff of science fiction: being able to order nearly anything you want and have it delivered to your door in less time than it takes to finish an episode of Game of Thrones. Yet thanks to Amazon Prime Air Drone Delivery, it may well become a reality. This service will use autonomous drones to deliver packages weighing up to five pounds in 30 minutes or less to addresses as far as 10 miles away by relying on "sense and avoid" technology to keep away from obstacles both on the ground and in the air. No word yet on when you'll be able to start scheduling gadget airdrops, but if this Jeremy Clarkson-hosted video is any indication, expect it to happen sooner rather than later.
