History may never record a civilian benefit of military technology greater than the TacoCopter. Just place your order on your smartphone and this unmanned aerial robot will whiz high above the traffic to deliver your meal fast, fresh and hot. A Silicone Valley start-up hopes to have the first TacoCopter in service in the near future.
Suddenly, the $3.2 billion annual budget for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) seems like money well spent. The company has recently submitted a proposal to DARPA requesting another $14.6 million in order to evaluate and adapt this UAV technology for the delivery of pizza as well.
