Is Humanity Safe? Amazon Would Prefer Using Drones Made in China

Ehang-HexaFirst and foremost, sorry for the stereotyped ‘made in China’ joke in the title – it is only a clever device that helps with gathering more traffic. Hope you’ll appreciate the honesty here (and the joke refers to Terminator outcomes, when machines go rogue… forget it).

Second, the TechCrunch Beijing ‘geek extravaganza’ gathering brought up some interesting family lunch discussion topics to people worldwide: Chinese fellow and drone developer named Ehang teased audiences with his hexacopter (is this a real word?) project, just before his Kickstarter campaign went green exactly a month ago.

The company behind Ehang is keeping the specifications tightly wrapped behind closed doors, but that’s not a problem because we currently live in a digital spying era, so no biggie.

Some representative who is not yet to be named, revealed quite a lot: the unnamed hexacopter will sport full carbon fiver body, with a 5 km (3.1 miles) radius and 30-40 minutes flying time per one charge. And to top even that, the drone will be a 10 kg (22 pounds) ‘loader’, almost four times more than Amazon’s delivery drones, and twice the power of DJI’s Spreading Wings S900. Cool.

And the chopper will cost $5,000. Not cool.
