We're excited to share Prime Air - something the team has been working on in our next generation R&D lab.

The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers' hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles.

On the one hand, this is insanely cool, awesome, and scifi.

On the other hand, with timeframes like this and the big 60 Minutes reveal, it smells like a marketing trick during the holiday shopping season.

Does anyone not worry that if you have Amazon branded drones zooming across the country acting as glorified delivery trucks. Then it would be quite easy to disguise other private, government and police drone activity? This sounds like a great way to pacify the population on the idea of frequent drone operations before a launch of something more nefarious.
