Texas readers may have heard that mega-retailer Amazon has some interesting ideas about the future of shipping their goods. Recently, the company has applied for patents for methods that include drones and flying ships. The innovative retailer has always used patent law to protect its technological developments, and now the company has applied for patents for underwater warehouses that would be built across the nation.

According to the patent filing, the underwater warehouses would be designed to make shipping easier for the retailer. They may be necessary, Amazon says, because of the difficulty in stocking items under its current system. The idea is that items would be stored in water-tight containers. When a customer orders an item, sound vibrations would cause the item to float to the water surface.

The application states that the underwater method could significantly improve the storage of inventory for Amazon. The warehouses would be created in purpose-built pools, lakes and reservoirs. This is one of many ideas that Amazon has floated for the future of internet item ordering and package shipping.

In Texas, as elsewhere, Amazon is very popular with consumers. As one of the world's largest suppliers of online goods, the company helps people all over the world. Now, they are using patent law to improve their processes. When they create an item that can help in the future, they often seek information about the often-complicated patent process. This information can help to ensure that a patent is created that will protect an idea or product, as happened here in this case.
