Everything about this screams "April Fool's Day prank" . . . but it's real.

Last night, JEFF BEZOS . . . the founder and CEO of Amazon . . . was on "60 Minutes" to announce the newest Amazon venture:  Delivery by flying robot drones.

It was such a big announcement that Bezos had kept it completely secret until the show aired.

He says if Amazon can get FAA approval, they'll be able to deliver your packages by flying robot drone within the next four or five years.

The service will be called Amazon Prime Air.  And the drones are so fast that you'll have the product delivered to your home approximately half an hour after you order it.  Welcome to the amazing, slightly frightening future.

Check out the video of the Amazon Prime Air.
