Micro-deliveries

Maker World - Submitted by user1390427652 on Jan 22 2014

Micro payments for Micro deliveries. Instead of a bike courier working for a company, they work for themselves and everyone is a courier if they want to be. By sharing our commuting habits, we will be paired up with products that need to be moved from one place to another. We will be paid small amounts to travel to places that we are already going.

NOW it's your turn...

Will people's expectations of rapid point-to-point delivery keep this from taking off? Or will it be like Lyft to traditional taxis?
