Is this pizza-delivering drone from Dominos just a publicity stunt, or a tantalizing look at the future of food delivery? Because while the eight-bladed DomiCopter is a little impractical given it needs a skilled pilot, eventually autonomous drones will be capable of delivering a piping hot pizza in mere minutes since they're able to avoid traffic, stop lights, and speed limits.

Paying for the pizza could all be resolved ahead of time using online ordering, and really the only tip you'd need to give a drone would be to watch out for those low-hanging branches on take off. The only downside would be the deafening hum of drones heading to every home in your neighborhood on Super Bowl Sunday. [YouTube via Pocket-lint]
