    In the future, many companies will rely on drones to make deliveries. In fact, 7-Eleven and Flirtey have pulled it off already. The company has announced that it has completed “the first fully autonomous drone delivery to a customer’s residence.”

    At a Reno, Nevada 7-Eleven® store, two deliveries were successfully completed. 7-Eleven merchandise – including hot and cold food items – were loaded into a unique Flirtey drone delivery container and flown autonomously using precision GPS to a local customer’s house.

    The purchases were delivered in a few minutes and included Slurpee drinks, chicken sandwich, donuts, hot coffee, and candy. Both companies have plans to expand drone delivery tests in the future.
