A small “unidentified flying object” that has been seen over Shanghai’s Huangpu River in recent days has been revealed to be a remote controlled plane being used to deliver cakes, reported Shanghai-based news website eastday.com.
The “UFO”, which is 1.1 meters long and weighs 10 kg, crossed the Huangpu River in a 45-minute flight to deliver a cake to a customer, according to the bakery that was testing the device, which flies at a maximum height of 100 meters.
There is no details that state if the RC device was really reported as a UFO or just caused some curious onlookers to be curiouser, but isn’t this the greatest thing EVER!? Until it fails and careens into someone and hurts them. That would be tragic. But I want food delivery this way!
Tune into the Virtual Skeptics ever week for the Robot Apocalypse segment. We have previously mentioned these devices and the hazards of unregulation.
