DoDo Pizza, located in Syktyvkarsk in the Komi republic of Russia, has introduced pizza delivery via drones. According to the IB Times, the service launched last weekend and took a half hour delivering a pizza to a customer in the city’s main square.
The pizzas are delivered by eight-rotor octocopters created by CopterExpress, also based in Russia. They travel at 40 km an hour, the story said, and are mounted with cameras and GPS so a restaurant employee can control the delivery route.
Once the drone – and pizza – reaches its destination, a restaurant employee calls the customer to accept the delivery.
Another pizzeria – Mumbai, India’s Francesco’s Pizza – began offering drone deliveries in May. Domino’s UK teased its social media fans with a “DomiCopter” delivery flight last summer.
