    How would you feel about cargo drones flying through your neighborhood?

    for VPN comments: most well-know vpn do not work. I, a senior-ish "software developer" could not manage to get one work during my last 2 trips to China ( Guanzhou , Shanghai and Beijing), many others as well. I am not saying ALL vpn are dead but VPN is not the solution

    Powering that many drones doesnt seem economically feasible.

    I am sorry but wtf is this nautical miles BS (like being different with normal miles isn't enough), can u please put metric at least on the side.

    I know they are widely used in aviation, etc.. but they don't mean anything too… well most people on earth, so please SI units.

    That aside great video

    It's weird to see a video about this without even mentioning that the google wing company is doing this commercially in australia today. Not in theory, not experimental, it's already happening and this video pretends like it's something that might happen eventually?

    Battery technology and infrastructure has to catch up first. Not to mention those corrupt dinosaurs we call politicians.

    They should get approval, the government shouldn't be against innovation.

    What about gangsters who will target the drones to rob them ? Integrating autonomous machines into urban areas will not be easy. People are not predictable and we don't know how they will react to this technology.

    2:08 '2' tonne freighter? Looks a little bigger than that, especially if it's "about the size of a Boeing 777"…

    Americans are scared of all Tech all the time. That's exactly why China will pass us up soon. If not already…

    For the smaller ones that deliver a couple of packages that last mile, sure, I can see it and I hope it happens. These large ones that carry hundreds of pounds across vast distances? There's no way that's better for the environment, because there's no way they run on electricity, it's just not possible with our current technology. They're going to run on fuel, just like a normal plane does, which makes them just as bad for the environment as planes are. Perhaps with propellers instead of jet engines they could use a lower grade of fuel, and make use of a hybrid system that stores solar energy during the day and supplements from that battery at night, but still that's going to be worse for the environment than a delivery truck or a shipping freighter. It takes a lot of energy to keep something up in the air, that's just how it is.
