Google Drone Delivery

Google's Flying Robots Can Deliver Your Packages

This is a concept you'll need to see to believe. The folks at Google X, the company's top-secret experimental division, have been working on flying robots that deliver packaged goods for two years. Imagine getting deliveries like the tributes of The Hunger Games! Today, Google is finally ready to announce the program, dubbed Project Wing.

Googlers are testing the autonomous delivery drones with a handful of lucky farmers in Queensland, Australia. A first-aid kit, candy bars, dog treats, and water have already been sent via drone, which is good news for us. This type of technology could be extremely useful in disaster situations such as earthquakes and hurricanes that render areas inaccessible by roads.

Amazon is already working on Amazon Prime Air, the retailer's own 30-minute drone delivery service. Clearly, interest in these unmanned airborne vehicles is hitting an all-time high. Perhaps Google will implement drones in its Google Shopping Express program, which just started testing same-day book delivery from Barnes & Noble.

Google X has already cooked up some insanely wild inventions — we can't wait to see what's next.

i love how they were contemplating 4 drone delivery methods and one of them was to shoot the package to the ground missile-style.
