Online megastore Amazon is always at the forefront of streamlining storage, picking and delivery systems, and its latest proposal is no exception: delivery by unmanned drone "Octocopters" within 30 minutes of your order.

Amazon says it has the technology for its drone army to be ready to launch as soon as the regulations are in place.
