If you're beginning to feel like Amazon.com is infiltrating everything you do, you're probably not alone.
The e-commerce giant turned computing behemoth made a series of announcements on Wednesday spanning the globe and pushing deep into the future.
A drone delivery trial in the U.K., video streaming everywhere except China and Alexa-powered rooms at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel are on the way, the Seattle-based company said, all while CEO Jeff Bezos was headed to Trump Tower for a meeting with the president-elect and other technology executives.
Far from just the go-to website for books, electronics and cookware, Amazon is now one of the world's largest and most powerful technology companies, with software, devices and communications systems across the consumer and business landscape.
Prime Air is designed to send packages of up to 5 pounds in 30 minutes or less via unmanned aerial vehicles. The company is testing the drone program from a fulfillment center in Cambridge to two customers nearby, and completed its first delivery on Dec. 7, according to a video on the website. Within several months, dozens of customers near the facility will have access.
"It looks like science fiction, but it's real," Amazon said on its site. "One day, seeing Prime Air vehicles will be as normal as seeing mail trucks on the road."
