I'm nervous about the idea of drones being used in our everyday lives.

The government is teaming with Amazon to test drones that deliver parcels straight into your garden within 30 minutes of ordering. Half aeroplane, half helicopter, they could fly at 50 mph at a height of 100 metres... and deliver your goods on a special landing mat.

There are still many challenges. Will they invade our privacy, bump into things or people, or get stolen? Although I want my parcels to reach me faster, safety must be a top priority before we adopt this technology.
