For a corporation as powerful and influential as Amazon, it was only a matter of time before they patented an entire building. Which they just did, in the form of their drone tower. Drones would take off for deliveries and robotic arms on the building would assist them in their returns, so most of the comings and goings in the building would be flying robot deliverymen. It doesn’t look like the whole building is autonomous though. Humans would still be the ones who have to fulfill the orders and load the drones with deliveries, and there are little trucks at the bottom of the building in the picture, and with no mention of autonomous vehicles, we’re going to assume humans are still driving those. Depending on your viewpoint, this could be a huge step in the right direction or a potential launching pad for Skynet’s HK-Aerial. We’ll let you figure that one out amongst yourselves. As of yet, there aren’t any plans to actually build the structure, so it seems like this is a proactive move by Amazon, rather than one that indicates a definite future.
