Drones to deliver textbooks in Australia

“Australia is set to launch the world’s first book drone, an unmanned aerial drone that would be used to deliver textbook orders to students. Here’s how it works: Students would order books from rental company Zookal via a smartphone app and one of six unmanned Flirtey drones would immediately deliver the books to students’ doors. Students would be able to track the drones’ progress in real time on a Google map. The venture is still pending approval from Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority and its backers hope to launch the service in March 2014. “
