Flirtey/7-Eleven Partnership Makes First Home Delivery Of Slurpees
” Well, that didn’t take long. A week after telling Robotics Trends it will be carrying out drone deliveries to homes within a year, Flirtey just completed the first FAA-approved drone delivery to a home.
Flirtey partnered with 7-Eleven, in honor of the convenience store’s 89th birthday, completing two drone deliveries from a 7-Eleven in Reno, Nevada to a nearby home. The Flirtey drone autonomously delivered Slurpees, a chicken sandwich, donuts, hot coffee and candy to the home of the family who placed the order.
The delivery was made “in the span of a few minutes,” and the Flirtey drone hovered in place and gently lowered each package to the ground in the family’s backyard.”
