Say a prayer for the pizza delivery guy. The dude who kept you fed from your college years all the way up until you finally started cooking for yourself (so, yeah, he’s still keeping you fed) may be in the midst of his final throes – soon to be replaced by… the drone.
Earlier today in Auckland, New Zealand, Domino’s Pizza conducted its first ever trial run of delivering a pie using one of the tiny aircrafts. According to the Guardian, the global pizza giant is hoping this test will pave the way for the brand to become the “world’s first company to offer a commercial drone delivery service.” “We’ve always said that it doesn’t make sense to have a 2-tonne machine delivering a 2kg order,” Domino’s Pizza Enterprises chief executive Don Meij was quoted as saying. That’s why you gotta order plenty of cheesy bread: It just makes sense from a ratio perspective.
