Is there anything more American in the 21st century than having doughnuts delivered to the comfort of your own home by drone?
Unless it's a doughnut delivery drone being forced out of the sky by a bald eagle, then I sure can't think of anything. For that -- gentle readers -- is the latest sign of the irresistable rise of the delivery drone: the airborne wing of the Internet of Things, if you will. (See Amazon Wants Delivery Drones.)
To wit, a drone that delivers glazed treats from above took to the sky Wednesday, in Denver, of all places, piloted by a local doughnut shop. Friday is apparently national doughnut day, so of course, it made perfect sense to do this on a Wednesday.
See this video from the AP for more:
No word yet on how many drones will be needed to swoop in and airlift my morbidly obese frame off the couch after I have subsisted on a steady diet of pizza and doughnuts from the sky for six months.
