NEW ZEALAND - It looks like the last domino has fallen in high tech pizza delivery, thanks to Domino's. On Wednesday, a New Zealand couple became the first people in the world to have their pizza delivered by drone. Domino’s claims the pizza touched down after a flight of fewer than 5 minutes.
The milestone comes just 3 months after Domino’s announced a partnership with a drone delivery service named Flirtey.
The pizza company has been no stranger to embracing technology; from allowing customers to order by simply using an emoji on twitter, building a pizza delivering robot and even creating the ultimate pizza delivery car that has a built-in oven.
Domino’s plans to expand drone delivery trials in six other countries but as of now the United States is not included. The runway may have been cleared this past summer when the FAA decided to allow commercial use of drones in the United States.
So we Americans will need to be patient before we start seeing a bunch of pizza pies in the sky but just know that your pizza prayers may soon be answered; slices falling from the heavens could soon be our new reality.
