AMAZON has patented a drone that’ll land on your car roof and charge it on the move – just like the new Blade Runner movie.
The futuristic tech would fly to your electric car and lock on giving you some much needed battery power to get home.
And it’s inspired by the drone that features on Ryan Gosling’s motor in the new sci-fi blockbuster that detaches itself and scans for lifeforms.
The patent plans show drivers summoning a request for extra juice – just like making an emergency Amazon Dash order.
Amazon would then scramble an available drone to your location to help you out and stop you conking out on the motorway.
The designs show a UAV with connectors that can plug into a docking station on the car roof.
Clever vehicle identification tech would stop the drone attaching itself to the wrong car.
And Amazon hasn’t even ruled out the drones being used to fill up motors with petrol or diesel and not just electricity.
The drone would weigh less than 45kg and reach heights of almost two miles before dropping down onto cars.
It’d have a range of around 30 miles from its base.
It’s the latest future project from Amazon which has been trialling drone technology to deliver parcels to back gardens.
And it could help solve one of the biggest obstacles to electric car ownership: the charging network and having to spend hours plugged in.
