Coming Soon: In-Office Coffee Delivery Drones

A Lab, an Amsterdam collective of media and technology start-ups, announced that they are working on a drone that delivers coffee.

You will place your order through a simplistic smartphone app which sends a signal to a coffee shop, presumably in your office building. The baristas set your drink in the drone and a stabilizer keeps your drink level as it floats to the docking station closest to you.

The drone uses both object and movement recognition to avoid bumping into walls or employees. A 3-D algorithm maps out the entire building, so the drone knows where docks are around the building.

The tech firm Purrontwerp & Skeyework is currently searching for investors to help them finalize the design and bring the drone to commercial market.

The Coffee Copter is currently being beta-tested in the A Lab complex and no one’s missing any limbs…yet.
