Ok so most of us had moments of weakness when instead of just getting in the car we opened our phone for UberEats. Or it was just more convenient to open the app. Either way, a lot of people can appreciate UberEats. (Fun fact: the Harold’s on 87th and the Dan Ryan is on UberEats and the delivery charge wasn’t bad!) It seems like now though, Uber will be using a drone to try out five-minute deliveries.
CEO Dara Khosrowshahi says that he wants Uber to be more about mobility than just cars. This is why in San Diego, they are trying out the drones to see how effective these five-minute deliveries are. Other big companies like Microsoft and Apple are getting in on the drone testing too.
As long as Uber drivers can still get their coin, I think this would be pretty cool. “It’s my personal belief that a key to solving urban mobility is flying burgers, in any city. We need flying burgers” said the CEO.
Well…with that being said, who would be excited to see a drone delivery bot?
