With the rising popularity of pizza delivery, a British company says that it is currently testing the feasibility of delivering pizzas by drone. T + Biscuits, the creative agency says that Domino’s hired them to try out the prototypes.
Tom Hatton, founder of T + Biscuits said, “We’re looking at making flying pizzas a possibility”. Domino’s has about 10,000 shops in 70 countries. It was reported on June 3, 2013 that during testing in Guildford, close to London, a small custom-built octacopter made a 4-mile, ten-minute long flight in order to deliver two large pepperoni pizzas.
The reports also observed that there was a proposal for a TacoCopter delivery app, which was just a concept at first, but Hatton states that the pizza delivery drones project is actually very real and serious. People involved in the project are thinking about the practicality of it, given the safety regulation and logistics.
On June 3, 2013 the representative of Domino’s UK shared that they had a lot of fun putting together the video. The representative went on to say that Domino’s is an innovative company which is constantly looking at ways to deliver pizzas as quickly as possible. He added that it would be great to think that one day pizzas could fly.
