This has been all over TV the last week, but it's just so lame. "Let's put our shoes on a needlessly high shelf somewhere, then have people tap buttons on a tablet and stand there and wait for a drone to go get the shoes and drop them in a bucket. THE FUTURE OF SHOPPING." Obviously it's just a marketing gimmick, but still pretty dumb.

They are going to have to impose a pretty solid set of rules though, to stop the drones being robbed / shot down, however.
