CAN YOU GUESS WHICH OF THESE AMAZON SCHEMES ARE REAL AND WHICH ARE FAKE?

28.04.2018

Take our quiz to see how Amazon will conquer the world.

In 1994, Amazon was a modest bookseller operating out of a garage. Today, the company is worth $685 billion, and it does way more than sell books.

Name an industry, and Amazon probably has some sort of plan to dominate it: TransportationArtificial intelligence. Healthcare.

It’s gotten to the point that people are (jokingly?) alluding to the company’s inevitable world domination. It feels… a little too real to be funny.

Helping Amazon along that path are all sorts of outside-the-box tech projects. Some are merely patents, some are already happening, but all are pretty crazy.

We thought up some pretty crazy schemes of our own. And we bet we can fool you into thinking they’re the real deal.

Can you guess which Amazon projects are real and which are fake (at least for now):

    Dystopia isn’t here yet, but with all these schemes, it doesn’t feel all that far away.
