Drones Fly Pharmacy Goods To Your Home

Drones Fly Pharmacy Goods To Your Home

QuiQui is a new delivery service in San Francisco that transports most items to customers in less than 15 minutes.

Emma Hutchings

QuiQui, a new drone delivery service coming to San Francisco’s Mission District, transports pharmacy items to your home and drops them off. Great for anyone feeling too sick to go to the shops or if there are no 24 hour pharmacies nearby, the goods are delivered by drone at the push of a button.

QuiQui operates 24 hours a day and most of the orders can be dropped off in under fifteen minutes. They charge $1 a delivery plus the cost of the goods. The fleet of modern drones give off zero emissions and use quiet clean electric power.

The FAA recently lost a lawsuit allowing it to ban commercial drones so this automated delivery service is completely legal. Also, the drones fly below 500 feet and nowhere near airports.

QuiQui are currently working with local pharmacies to offer prescription delivery, and those who want an invite to the service can sign up on the website.
