Here is a Drone That Delivers Coffee to Your Desk

The future is here. A startup based in Amsterdam just announced a device that delivers coffee via drone.

Many people predict that drones, tiny helicopters that fly about automatically, are going to be a fixture in the very near future. A slew of companies, including Amazon, are working on their own variations on the concept. One such company in Amsterdam, however, may have them all beat. They designed a drone that delivers coffee.

A tech firm called Purrontwerp & Skeyework are behind the Coffee Copter -- and what a copter it is. If you work in a building that employs this technology, all you have to do is order a coffee and then wait as that delicious caffeine is flown to you posthaste. You won't ever have to lift a muscle, which is good because muscles are heavy. A constantly evolving 3-D algorithm ensures the drone doesn't bump into anyone or cause any trouble while it's traveling and it also has a built-in stabilizer so it doesn't waste any of that liquid gold.

The company is currently looking for investors so they can enter the manufacturing phase, but for now they have a working prototype set up in their own office space. The rest of us will have to get our coffee the old-fashioned way, by sending an intern out to get it.
