Drones bring you pizza – level 3

02-07-2014 15:00

A pizza chain in the north of Russia began pizza deliveries by drone on Saturday. The first chopper drone delivery was met with applause by witnesses in the Syktyvkar’s main square.

Initially, drone deliveries will be used for active sales in the city parks, beaches and universities by salesmen who will take an order and request a drone to arrive.

The chopper drones involved in the pizza delivery were developed by a Russian company, who says they can fly at a speed of up to 25 miles per hour (40 kilometres per hour).

The company plans to eliminate any human input in the pizza delivery very soon.

Difficult words: chopper drone (drone that flies like a helicopter), witnesses (somebody who sees something), initially (in the beginning), eliminate (to get rid of something), human input (people helping with something).
