Are You Ready for the TacoCopter?
It is a lazy day, and for some unexplainable reason, you are in the mood for tacos. What do you do? Do you hop into your car, and drive to the nearest Taco Bell? But what if you are too lazy to do that? The answer – albeit still at some point in the future – may be to engage the services of a TacoCopter.
What is a TacoCopter, exactly? It is a new service that will let consumers order tacos online, and have them delivered to wherever they are by way of an unmanned, robotic quadrotor.
An image of how the order will look like on a smart phone reads: “Out For Delivery… Your tacos are on their way to you. Please stay stationary.”
The TacoCopter website shared that users can order tacos using a smart phone, although it was not clear if it will use a native app or a smart phone-friendly website to make that happen. The TacoCopter is in private beta at this time, and only for those who are in the San Francisco Bay Area.
So far, however, TacoCopter remains to be nothing but a concept, so don’t expect to see quadrotors flying around with packages of tacos anytime soon. It should be really interesting, though, to wait and see whether it is the concept that will eventually come to fruition – and whether consumers will warm up to it or not.
