Simpson told HuffPost that because of the FAA's regulations -- as well as other minor problems, like navigating the treacherous terrain of an urban environment, keeping the food warm, finding a city map precise enough to avoid crashes 100 percent of the time, avoiding birds, balconies and telephone wires, delivering food to people indoors, delivering food to the right person, dealing with greedy humans who would just steal the Tacocopter as soon as it got to them, etc. -- the Tacocopter website exists more as a conversation starter about the future of food delivery (and delivery in general), as well as about the commercial uses of unmanned vehicles, than an actual startup plan or business.

Actually it's a genius way to bring attention to the fact that the FAA still outlaws the use of any unmanned aerial vehicles for commercial use.

"Here's a fun idea, we can deliver tacos to you anywhere, oh wait...IT'S ILLEGAL! Wouldn't it be nice if the government would allow ingenious ideas like this to be developed so you can get a taco anywhere?"
