Amazon Prime Air Drones on Display at SXSW 2017

But did they fly?

March 13, 2017

Amazon Prime Air drones are on display at this year’s South by Southwest (SXSW,) a festival of music, technology, and film in Austin, TX. In 2016, Amazon Prime Air and other big player’s in the drone industry  gathered at SXSW for a panel on the future of UAS — there are a few other drone related sessions at SXSW 2017.

According to NBC News, the drones were tucked away behind a secret bookcase entrance at Amazon's Resistance Radio immersive experience. They also appear to be older prototypes, but nonetheless they're still pretty cool.

Cue the dramatic music: Here are the Amazon Prime Air drones …
Eeek! Contain your excitement ... Definitely listening to Max Frost while writing this. I had to know what the Amazon drones were groovin' to.
I want to be up close and personal with this Amazon drone. Jelly.
Sadly, the drones didn't deliver any whiskey because they didn't fly , but I like where Lance's head is at.
