amazon announces that its first ‘prime air’ drone delivery service in cambridge, UK, was a success. one year following the first demonstration of the unmanned air delivery service, ‘prime air’ delivered a TV streaming stick plus a bag of popcorn to the garden of a nearby customer directly, quite different to the cargo inside the first ever recorded air delivery.
