The future is here, and it is Drone Delivered Pizza!
This is really the technological revolution we’ve been waiting for, and it happened in New Zealand first. Dominos worked with a drone company called Flirtey to make it all happen.
The customers ordered their two pizza – those all important toppings were Peri-Peri Chicken and Chicken and Cranberry (gross!) online and it was cooked up super quick by the chain near Auckland.
Then the goodies were loaded up into a special box which was attached to the underside of the drone. The vehicle flew off on a course guided by GPS and arrived at the destination in no time.
Delivery was handled via a mat in the back garden which the sensors on the drone can see to guide it in. Using a winch, the box was deposited and these customers got to be the first in the world to receive a pizza delivery by drone!
It’s pretty amazing stuff, and it was Dominos Australia who had the first ever pizza delivered by a robot earlier this year!
This is the future but it’s not something we’re likely to see in Ireland soon, as there are restrictions on larger drones in our skies.
