When Jeff Bezos revealed Amazon’s plans to launch half an hour delivery by drone, the internet went wild with praise, doubt and premonitions of a Terminator style future! But in this day and age, we think there’s a whole host of much weirder events that could befall the delicate pieces of kit!

1. Shoot ’em up

No doubt the occasional cry of, “Aww, it’s just a Wii game…” will be heard in the distance.  

2. When dogs fly

dogs Something moving in the garden you say? The dog’s on it – biting, jumping up and generally terrorising it. asics gel lyte 3 hombre negras If your dog is one who just WILL NOT LET GO, then wave goodbye to Rover as he disappears over the horizon, teeth firmly clamped onto the Prime Air drone. Whether the sky starts raining family pets or Amazon sorting centres become temporary lost dog hotels is another question.  

3. It’s raining drones

falling A fairly obvious but one of the most likely incidents – what’s going to happen when a drone malfunctions, dropping from the sky like a stone and hitting some poor, unsuspecting soul in the process? “What happened to Steve?” “Oh, poor guy got droned the other day, nasty…”  

4. nike pas cher Unintentional nuclear apocalypse

nuke Some bored guy in the Kremlin had just ordered a PS4 game from Amazon (Battlefield 4 if you must know). Before he knows what’s happened, Russia’s Strategic Missile Troops launch a responsive nuclear strike. Oops! Those Prime Air drones are pretty quick, and that blip on the radar could easily be confused for an intercontinental ballistic missile (in theory). cheap ffxiv gil  

5. New Balance 420 damskie They come in peace

6. Robot Wars takes to the sky

7. The great trucker uprising of 2015

truckers-nets What’ll happen to the delivery teams driving around products from Amazon other online retailers if drone technology catches on? There’s every chance they could be out of a job, while the suppliers of nets and other hunting paraphernalia coincidentally start raking it in…  

8. adidas y3 homme One giant leap for drone-kind

iss Felix Baumgartner skydived from space, Will.i.am had a single beamed down to Earth from space, so why couldn’t a Prime Air drone deliver some essentials to the International Space Station? it’s need proper heat protection of course, but even astronauts need a dose of Big Bang Theory every now and then!  

9. A new generation of pranksters

There’s a reason Beyonce lost her glamorous demeanor at the Super Bowl. She had a shocking premonition of an age where, no longer limited by the humble prank call, trouble makers everywhere could disrupt world-famous events with a coordinated invasion of 5lb item-carrying, flying robots.
