You May Soon Be Able to Order 7-Eleven Slurpees by Drone

7-Eleven just made the world’s first Slurpee (and chicken sandwich and doughnut) delivery by drone to a home in Reno

Who knew a frozen slushy could go down in history books?

7-Eleven just made history for the first-ever commercial drone delivery. Even though it sounds like a run-of-the-mill delivery, coordinating with the drone startup, Flirtey, was anything but.

“This delivery required special flight planning, risk analysis, and detailed flight procedures ensuring residential safety and privacy were equally integrated,” Chris Walach, the director of operations for the Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems (NIAS), said in a statement. NIAS, a non-profit vehicle advocacy group backed by the state government, helped make sure the delivery went smoothly.

After the drone arrived at its intended destination, it hovered a few feet above their backyard and dropped the delivery down (Slurpee still cold, coffee still hot).

“The convenience of having access to instant, 24/7 drone delivery is priceless,” said Michael, the delivery recipient. “It’s amazing that a flying robot just delivered us food and drinks in a matter of minutes.”

7-Eleven has not yet confirmed if it will pursue a drone-delivery program as a more permanent fixture.
