In perhaps the first bit of "technological research" to involve flying pepperoni, Domino's has developed a drone capable of delivering pizzas.
While the idea is likely just a PR stunt, a Domino's franchise in the United Kingdom posted a video on Monday of the unmanned "DomiCopter" actually delivering two pizzas in the company's signature Heatwave bags.
A spokesman for the Michigan-based pizza company confirmed that the concept is "the brainchild of our independent master franchise company in the U.K." The digital media company T and Biscuits partnered with drone firm AeroSight to bring the idea to life.
But don't expect two piping hot pizzas to be delivered to your door via drone anytime soon.

Drones have great potential uses in precision agriculture. I would like to get one for myself in the very near future for taking imagery, video, and photos to help me make better decisions of applying fertilizer and scouting crops for pests, weeds, and disease during the growing season. Maybe I can send it for pizza when I'm late in the fall and have pizza flown right to the cab of the combine.
Resistance is futile. You will make an excellent drone.
F'n drones should be illegal. Did you hear about the one that almost caused an airliner to crash? Those things are a menace.
Interesting concept, but not nearly as interesting as the anti-drone technology that will inevitably disable the drone, without harming the pizza...
