UPS announces: “Me too!”

In a statement to TheVerge, a UPS spokesman stated that UPS, too, is playing with the idea of using multicopters for small parcel delivery.

“The commercial use of drones is an interesting technology and we’ll continue to evaluate it. UPS invests more in technology than any other company in the delivery business, and we’re always planning for the future.”

Aside from this being an obvious “me too” statement in response to Amazon’s well-executed PR maneuver, DJI has announced that they could produce suitable models within “18 to 24 months”. The question now is: Who else will make such an announcement next? It’s not too late for sticking a company logo on a multirotor craft for some nice press shots…
