Video: Google introduces its “self-flying” drone delivery vehicle

Google has released a video of its prototype “self-flying” delivery drone:

Project Wing is a Google[x] project that is developing a delivery system that uses self-flying vehicles. As part of our research, we built a vehicle and traveled to Queensland, Australia for some test flights. There, we successfully delivered a first aid kit, candy bars, dog treats, and water to a couple of Australian farmers. We’re only just beginning to develop the technology to make a safe delivery system possible, but we think that there’s tremendous potential to transport goods more quickly, safely and efficiently.

    Queensland Australia is probably one of the few places drones would work. Can you imagine using them in congested metropolitan areas? Someone would shoot them down and steal the contents!
