If you normally join fun runs and marathons, then you know the common challenges we go through on securing a race kit, specially on well sought after races.
Sometimes registration sites are not too accessible, the delivery option takes too long and sometimes your kit gets lost, and consolidated kit claiming (mass claiming) is just not an option for some people.
What if there’s another way!? Pay online and get your kits delivered via… an automated flying drone?! DRONE!? Sounds like some sci-fi mambo-jumbo that came out of a Star Trek Movie?
Well, check this out before you quit reading. Australian company Zookal.com is going to start delivering books to their customers using Flirtey.
Flirtey is an autonomous (meaning it navigates by itself) drone using GPS and collision avoidance technology to fly its way to the customer. The customer can also track the location of Flirtey via their mobile phones to know the right time to meet the drone for theirpackage. Cool Eh!?
Check this video out!
Zookal.com will be the pioneer for this technology, and if it works, we might just have a new option for our race kit delivery in the future. Pick-up, Mass Kit Claiming or Send the Drone ;)
