Amazon's at this point largely hypothetical plan to replace truck deliveries with a fleet of robotic drones might have already been made redundant.

By rockets.

An "independent" and timely project by Zach King posits the idea that rocket-enabled deliveries could cut the waiting time from 30 minutes to just five. Though we have a feeling he's not being entirely serious.

Either way, we're still on board with Waterstones - even if rockets are cooler than drones, owls are still cooler than both.
