Amazon Prime Air Will Deliver in 30 Minutes (in 2015)

Amazon Prime Air could change delivery - or take over the world.

Massive retailer Amazon has used their considerable success and wealth to bring us the future. They're calling it Amazon Prime Air , and it will blow your mind.

Amazon founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, took the stage on "60 Minutes" Sunday night to reveal Amazon's amazing new scheme. The YouTube video gave a rough outline of what the service would provide.

In short: 30 minute shipping.

Bezos says, pending FAA approval, the project will launch sometime in 2015, which seems awfully close to now--but who's complaining?

Of course, there are a lot of questions that have yet to be answered on Amazon's Q & A site dedicated to Air. With all of the research that has clearly gone into this project, how much can we be expecting to shell out for the benefit of getting your package faster than your greasy Domino's pizza?

Sound off in the comments down below and let me know how you feel about Amazon Prime Air. Are you excited to get your pre-orders and 12:31 a.m., or do you think SkyNet is upon us?

    Who knows how this will actually go down and lots of details still seem to be on in the air (ha). It's nice to see big companies taking changes on some more interesting technologies though.

    I see this going very badly. I'll stick with regular shipping.

    1. Is it automated or controlled by person?
    2. If by person what happens if signal is damaged or hindered?
    3. Automated, will it avoid storms and such? If not is the product automatically insured?
    4. If shipping to someone else, what happens if they are not home to get it, anyone could just walk up and take it.
    5. No confirmation of receipt of package, so Amazon is no longer able to be held responsible if for whatever reason you don't receive it.

    Yeah, there are a lot of variables. I have to assume that they have some amazing technology to deal with a lot of potential problems, but the whole thing seems flimsy, albeit really cool.
