Amazon Gets Flying Warehouse Patent: Bioshock Infinite is Happening Guys

Source – Amazon tests its first drone delivery and it took 13 minutes  Wednesday, 14 Dec 2016 | 12:14 PM ET | 01:19

Amazon has been awarded a patent for a giant flying warehouse that acts as a launchpad for drones to deliver items within minutes.

The U.S. e-commerce giant described plans for an “airborne fulfillment center” (AFC) such as an airship or blimp that would float at an altitude of around 45,000. The airship will be stocked with lots of products.

When a customer places an order, a drone or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) will fly down and deliver the package. Amazon insists that this would require little power because the drone would be gliding down rather than having to take off and land.

 

“When the UAV departs the AFC, it may descend from the high altitude of the AFC using little or no power other than to guide the UAV towards its delivery destination and/or to stabilize the UAV as it descends,” the patent filing explains.

Guys, GUYS. Its happening. IT’S HAPPENING!

I’m very hyped for this. We are about twenty years away from flying cities. Fuck, we are this close to a real life Bioshock. The crazy thing is we’re closer to Infinite aka sky Bioshock instead of deep sea trench original Bioshock (but Lew, there’s the original one in space! Yea that can suck a fat one). That’s how crazy deep sea is. There’s all sorts of shit we can’t handle down there.

So let’s actually look at how this shit is going down:

Upon further review, we are also very close to some Starcraft Protoss Carrier type shit. I hope they filed a patent. Just come in and fuck Amazon’s shit up.
Actually looking at this is gives me a little anxiety. Seeing these little bastards flying through NYC would terrify me. Go and watch all the drone videos of these little SOBs dropping off and hitting someone. Put the fear of robot overlord god in ya after that. Now imagine the Amazon Prime drone flying in that bowling ball that Walt in 5b bought and dropping it short on your nog. The first year or two they have to just deliver necklaces and t-shirts. Also, it has to be fair game that if you catch one of these you get whatever is in them. I’m no lawyer, but transporting things via drone in public airspace means if I catch you with a butterfly net you are mine.
Lastly, I cannot wait for the first floating warehouse heist. It is going to be fucking BANANAS. Dudes (or dudettes cuz I’m not supporting the MALE PATRIARCHY THAT IS KEEPING EVERYONE D…. calm down Lew, deep breathes) dropping out of planes at 10,000 feet parachuting in a la Point Break. It’s going to be gucci. V, v gucci.
