FAA puts microbrewery’s drone beer delivery project on ice

A nearly unbelievable video of a drone that delivers 12-packs of beer to ice fishers on a frozen lake turns out to be too good to be true. Beermaker Lakemaid created the video as a riff on Amazons announcement on 60 Minutes last month, where the company showed a theoretical vision of a service that delivers small packages by air, autonomously. They think its a great idea, though theyre telling me to stop, Lakemaid president Jack Supple told The Verge, adding that the FAA considers the project commercial and therefore off limits until those policies are reviewed and potentially revised next year. The idea was to let those who were ice fishing put in orders without having to make their way back onto land.
