UPS Tests Drones for Emergency Supply Delivery

Yesterday Fortune┬áreported that The United Parcel Service (what most people refer to as “the UPS man”) has successfully tested delivery of an asthma inhaler to Children’s Island off the coast of Massachusetts.

DHL drone makes a delivery. (Sorry, UPS.)

UPS is also testing in-house use of drones to help with inventory tracking, much like Amazon is.

What I find to be the most interesting and clever part of the Fortune┬ástory, though, is the name of the drone startup company that UPS is working with – CyPhy Works.

Nifty name, right?
