God I love this. I hereby coopter the name Tacocopter for the band that I now have to start just to call it Tacocopter.

Indeed, the concept behind Tacocopter is very simple, and very American: You order tacos on your smartphone and also beam in your GPS location information. Your order — and your location — are transmitted to an unmanned drone helicopter (grounded, near the kitchen where the tacos are made), and the tacocopter is then sent out with your food to find you and deliver your tacos to wherever you’re standing.

And these drones can’t carry much weight if any, so tacos will be delivered one ingredient at a time until further notice.
