This drone delivery concept drops packages in your hands [VIDEO]

Drone delivery will truly change our lives. But a company has yet to come up with a complete, mainstream solution. Even then, some wonder how consumers will react to these drones. Some concepts, like a project from Mercedes-Benz, use a human for the final mile of the delivery. Others deliver to your doorstep.

However, a new concept from technology research company Cambridge Consultants called DelivAir would drop packages straight into the hands of consumers. 

As seen in the video, the customer orders a product with their smartphone. The drone then uses GPS to locate a person via smartphone. Then, it uses optical tracking and a 3D-imaging and ranging system to locate and authenticate the person receiving the package when they come into view. The technology uses coded patterns sent via a phone’s LED flash to identify the recipient. 

Once the drone arrives, the customer unlatches the payload from the drone. 

The company created a demo video of the drone in use, sending flowers to a loved one, receiving bike repair materials on the go and being delivered a bean burrito. You can see it as a part of our Video of the Week
