Burger flippers. Package sorters. Taxi drivers. The list of jobs that will someday be performed via automation is growing everyday. Now we can apparently add runway models.

At a fashion show in Milan on Sunday, luxury designer Dolce & Gabbana didn’t trot out handbags on the arms of slender humans. Instead, drones did the heavy lifting, emerging from backstage to the cheers of the audience capturing it all on smartphones, as Kendrick Lamar’s “All the Stars” provided the soundtrack.

According to a write-up in Fashionista, getting the stunt off the ground led to a significant delay in the show starting, as D&G pleaded with those in attendance to turn off their WiFi connections.

With pizza and burritos already being tested as future drone delivery items dropping from the sky, why not add pricey purses to the mix?
