Amazon Prime Air: Delivered By Drones The drones, called Octocopters, could deliver packages weighing up to 5 pounds which accounts for 86% of Amazonâ€™s products to customers within 30 minutes of them placing their order. The service will be called Prime Air and comes as Amazon is looking to improve its efficiency to boost growth. However, it still has to wait for permission from US regulators. It is scheduled to launch some time in 2015. If this is a success I believe this will revolutionise the way all sorts of packages are delivered to our homes! Take a look at this short clip showing a drone picking up a package from one of its warehouses and delivering it to the doorstep of a customer's house.
The Last BarFighter: Beer Sampling Arcade Game So you like arcade gaming machines, youâ€™re pretty awesome at old school street fighter, and you love beer. So now imagine, if some awesome beer company made an arcade machine, that pitted players against each other to win free beer. Well, here it is.. The Last BarFighter, from Big Boss Brewing, is the first ever beer-dispensing arcade game that takes the snore factor out of beer sampling. Players place their cups in the tray below their respective tap. After three rounds of street-fighter-style-action, the winnerâ€™s cup is filled with a sample of beer from a keg placed within the machine. To the victor goes the pour. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njPqVNpwaew
