Amazon wants to make deliveries using drones, and it appears many customers are okay with the unmanned aircraft dropping packages on doorsteps. In a survey, 53 percent of people said they would like drones to deliver holiday purchases for them, according to the CNET report. That number will likely increase as more Americans become familiar with drones and their potential uses.

The US federal government expects drones to become more common among private citizens - but wants to create guidelines for commercial use - and that includes delivery drones. An effort to realistically roll out drone fleets to make deliveries will take a significant amount of R&D effort, but would be a unique way to streamline deliveries.
