Now it's UPS turn to use flying drones. First Pizza hut, then Amazon, and now finally UPS. Soon, the human driver can be replaced as well. This one seen in the video below gives the impression of being one day being able to replace not only the mail man, but any type of delivery service person as well. What type of delivery service would you love to get by robot?

The crows will be intercepting our UPS packages now I suppose. They will snatch those packages and trash the copters in an instant. Especially the ones delivering pizzas and take out stuff. Heck, the Pizza delivery people should be armed. The crows are probably why they don't do home deliveries out by us. By the lake, it is the seagulls that attack the delivery people, the smell travels a long way. The seagulls are just as crafty as the crows. I know, I am being racist.

I'd love to see one try to deliver and setup a pinball machine!

Next will come armed drones, by the dozens.

Robots are good for the owners, I don't think it is good for the workers though. I understand people will say humans will adapt and find new jobs, but at some point the average person maxes out their intelligence, and they can't do the new jobs that technology requires. Perhaps I'm underestimating humans, I certainly hope I am, otherwise the future looks bleak for the average person, even though it will be extraordinary for the elite.

The UPS ones will fly out of the truck's top compartment. Wonder if they will have a warehouse docking station drone eventually as Amazon plans to. Can see thieves all over those. Guess they will have to have security.

I think drone delivery requires someone's presence to able to deliver. And those seen in the videos are for those living in the outskirts.

Vid didn't work?
Probably should have someone present in the case that so much can go wrong despite people's intentional action as it is. Especially with the proposed Amazon drone warehouses. Can see it would have to be under certain circumstances as to if they can deliver. Tree cover of property surely doesn't help. An open space, delivering to a porch or door step is most opportune.
