Following Amazon's patent for a flying warehouse

comes news of its latest innovative venture - The Driverless Drone Hairbrush.
Insiders tell me that Amazon is planning a joint venture with L'Oreal which has just launched The Hair Coach, an intelligent hairbrush that listens for breaking hair and adjusts its grooming strength to limit this.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-38503932
The Driverless Drone Hair Coach is fitted with 4 small propellers and has a range of 10 miles. Users will be able to call up the DDHC via an app and the brush, with a top speed of 120 mph will be with the customer within 5 minutes. Once there the brush hovers over the customer's head, its sensors and gyroscope enabling it to brush the hair with care even as the customer walks around eating breakfast.
Tests in California have seen few hitches though one young woman did lose great clumps of hair when the wind blew it into the drone's rotors. Currently aviation rules for drones do not allow it within 100 yards of a building so the tests have been carried out in open fields making them somewhat susceptible to weather conditions. However Amazon expects that public and aviation confidence will build and that within a few years authorities will allow the drones to fly into backyards where wind conditions are more controlled.
The user's app will contain details of the user's hair type and length and of their preferred hairstyle and grooming method. During grooming the drone's sensors will update all this information and suggest new hairstyles that the user might like and hair products that are suited to the user's grooming needs.
A spokesman for Amazon said "In the future no one will own a hand-powered hairbrush. Instead we will all call up a DDHC from the nearest Amazon flying warehouse via the DDHC app and put the kettle on while we wait the few minutes for it to arrive. We expect to see a revolution in backyard grooming."
