Pie in the sky: Drone delivers pizza in Syktyvkar, northern Russia
Dodo pizza, the first pizzeria to use drone deliveries in Russia, carried out their first aerial order in Syktyvkar on Saturday. The delivery took just 30 minutes from the restaurant’s kitchen to the central square of the city. Dodo pizza is now planning to make this kind of delivery a regular gig. When a pizza is delivered to a certain address, the client is informed that he may step out from his house and grab the order. The drone uses video cameras and GPS to ensure it reaches the client. This pizza is then lowered via cable to the customer. The drone was developed by the Russian CopterExpress technological company. The drone’s average speed reaches 40 km/hour.
