Students in Australia are going to be able to get their textbooks delivered right to their smartphones thanks to the Zookal textbook drones. The drones were built by a startup company called Flirtey and are intended to help cut costs associated with same-day shipping. The drones, known as hexacopters due to their six rotors, fly directly to a customer's smartphone instead of their house.
The Zookal textbook drones allow students to save time and get their study materials delivered right to them. The cost of operating the drones will be included into the marketing budget of the companies Flirtey works with. Unmanned drones are known widely as tools of war, but startups have recently proved that they can be used as low-cost delivery vehicles that can quickly navigate crowded cities.
