Americans Might Get Flowers And Beer By Drone After All

Great news for people who were looking forward to a future of receiving small deliveries on their doorsteps by unmanned drone. A federal judge’s decision last week means that a Michigan-based florist can go ahead and continue their tests of flower delivery by unmanned aerial vehicle.

It’s big companies like Amazon that get most of the attention when it comes to commercial applications of drones, but the florist is ready to get started with its tests as soon as possible. They had planned some rose deliveries as a Valentine’s Day publicity stunt before the FAA put a stop to the festivities.

Awesome, isn't it?? A country where we can have stuff dropped off at our doorstep, but you can't pick the health plan that actually suits your needs (like 70 year olds with maternity coverage).

Just saw where they will be testing drones at the Crisfield airport starting next month. We get everything that no one else wants like windmills, prisons, landfills, and now drones. What's next EDC?
