Amazon considering the use of drones for deliveries

Amazon are testing drones in their amazon prime air service. Apparently this will allow 30min delivery. I don’t think we will see this anytime soon due to regulations and also battery limitations, let alone all the other complications. But I think the base technology is just abot ready for this. And if amazon are backing this idea seriously then it might mean good things for regulations!
