Google tests drone delivery prototype with dog food drop
Prototype still 'years away from product,' says company
Google is in the prototype testing stage of its drone package delivery system, which it has been developing for more than two years, and its latest test involved a dog food drop in Australia.
While Google says the prototype is years away from a product, Project Wing has produced the first possibility the company is willing to stand behind. So far, Google has conducted at least 30 test flights as part of the project. “Throughout history there have been a series of innovations that have each taken a huge chunk out of the friction of moving things around,” says the test run video's narrator. “Project Wing aspires to take another big chunk of the remaining friction of moving things around the world.”
The video shows a drone delivering dog treats to an Australian farm.
