Jeremy Clarkson unveils Amazon Prime Air new drone design

No primary category set

It seems like part of the reported £160m Amazon deal to drag former Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and James Hammond also involved them doing a bit of promo work. You can read more about the project on Amazon.

We’ve written about Amazon Prime Air before too.

Amazon has revealed their new design for Amazon drones that will apparently be the delivery system of the future in a video involving Clarkson.

And here’s an image of the drone:

There is a plethora of obstacles to overcome before this Drone delivery system becomes a reality. Not least is government regulation. But we’ll see. When they first announced it, I thought it was bunkum and very little more than a publicity gimmick but it seems that it isn’t.

What do you reckon?

  1. Amazing how every December, the Amazon drone story resurfaces to provide a dollop of free press at the busiest period in the retail calendar. (P.S I have made this statement for the past two years now!)

  2. I am impressed.
    their previous offerings for drone delivery just werent a reality, but that looks feasible.
    and if it only lands on designated Amazon landing pads, that only come with a prime (or primeair premium platinum+) subscription….
