Amazon has a new system - level 2

Drones are generally seen in a bad light. After all, they are used mainly for finding and killing people. Amazon, however, would like to use these machines for people’s good.

Amazon is testing a system to use drones to deliver packages to its customers. You could simply order something online, pay for it and wait in your garden for the little aircraft.

The drones are navigated by GPS and are expected to carry packages which do not weigh more than five pounds (2.3 kilograms). No matter how great all this sounds, we will have to wait four to five years for this system to be launched.

Difficult words: drone (aircraft without the pilot), bad light (people do not like something), launch (start).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
