Amazon has been given a patent on a system to deliver packages from the sky via on-board parachutes.
According to the patent, an adhesive label on the package will open up a parachute when dropped from an aircraft or drone.
"The parachute and/or the breakaway cover can include graphics to provide address, velocity, or spin information for the package. The parachute cords can include a harness to separate the cords and reduce tangling of the cords and spinning of the parachute canopy with respect to the package."
Next time you go outside to check if your package has arrived, duck!
