Imagine being on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list, stepping out of your hiding place in an unknown location and having a can of beer (non-alcoholic of course) dropped on you.
For the record, not all drones are machines used for warfare. This August, attendees of the OppiKoppi festival in South Africa will be able to order a can of beer via their smartphones and have the can delivered to them by a drone. The drone, actually an octocopter, developed by Darkwing Aerials holds an individual can of beer fitted with a mini parachute. They pick up on your smart device’s GPS location within one square meter before releasing the can which then parachutes to the ground. This year the drones will be used as a promotional tool for Windhoek beer.
Hopefully Darkwing Aerials is working on a future model drone that drops kegs of beer. Beers From Heaven!
