Domino's Newest Pizza Delivery System By Drone

Domino's Newest Pizza Delivery System By Drone. The traditional pizza delivery boy could soon be a thing of the past if a revolutionary new plan by Domino's comes to fruition. The popular chain has teamed up with an advertising agency to build a drone which is capable of delivering pizzas to its customers by flying them through the air. The 'Domicopter' by passes crowded streets to reach its target within minutes and still keeps its cargo piping hot on arrival.

“If anything, it went quicker than a pizza boy, We were amazed at how easy it was going to be” says Biscuits founder Tom Hatton told Fox News. The idea is far from impossible, as proven by Domino's UK franchise, who recently posted YouTube video showing a pizza being delivered by an unmanned flying vehicle -- the DomiCopter. The DomiCopter -- created and operated by a drone company called Aero Sight appears to safely deliver a pizza over a large distance. First, it was not technically a drone mission.

While Domino's said, "GPS coordinates could potentially be used in future delivery flights, this inaugural mission was controlled by an experienced drone copter pilot who had the benefit of several cameras to help guide the flight . It may be a geek's dream come true, but it won't happen in the U.S. very soon, though."

The pizzas were loaded into an insulated bag to keep them warm on their pioneering journey, which would take them four miles to their destination.
Two cameras mounted on the drone chronicled every moment of the 10-minute flight, which ended successfully with the warm treats delivered into the hands of a happy customer.
The drone was controlled by a pilot on the ground, although in the future it could use GPS to reach its destination without help from any human operators .

Engineers are now hoping to increase the weight which can be carried by the drone, so that it can transport drinks along with pizzas.
'Domino's is an innovative company that is constantly looking at ways to deliver pizzas as quickly as possible, It could be great to think that one day pizzas could fly!' says company Spokesman .
