A future in which dronings deliver our goods is not far off.
Giants like Amazon are working on drone delivery, and once regulatory obstacles are overcome, the rest of the market will want to compete.
Thats where FlyTrex comes in.
We visited the company, based in Tel Aviv, which is an end-to-end product that offers hardware and software so businesses can deliver their goods via drone.
The FlyTrex Mule, an octocopter about the size of a mini fridge, is able to carry up to~ 6 lbs, which is the equivalent of about four Chipotle burritos. It can fly for a distance of around 14 miles at a velocity of about 45 mph.
In other words, get food delivered via Seamless or Postmates could be an entirely different experience in the next few years. And its not only food. CEO and cofounder Yariv Bash says that the great majority of the packages that Amazon delivers( more than 80 percentage) weighs less than six pounds.
To be as efficient as possible, FlyTrex doesnt land the drone, but rather delivers goods within a suitcase tied to a cord. When the Mule arrives at the desired destination FlyTrex is targeting private homes the drone will release the purse via the cord down to the ground and the cord will automatically release.
The drone flies away and youre left with a four-pack of beer( in my lawsuit ).
The FlyTrex model charges business for take-off and on a per-meter basis, but businesses can control their droning deliveries through the FlyTrex API.
Though FlyTrex hasnt announced the full details of the project, the company is working on a deal with a postal bureau to start delivering packages within the next year in an unknown urban environment.
Were living in the future, people.
