Amazon is getting serious about drones. Did you stay up late ordering books and movies? One day, an aerial drone might show up with your merchandise.

Our future has always been colored with a splash of robotics! It may not be a seamless transition, of course. Things break down. In terms of probability, a handful of Americans are likely to be smacked in the head each year by a falling robot carrying Season 2 of Dexter.
