From Google X comes Project Wing, an autonomous drone delivery service that recently went through some testing in Queensland, Australia. The project has been in the works for nearly two years, with self-flying vehicles now ready to complete specific delivery tasks. During the test flights in Australia, they were able to deliver a first aid kit, candy bars, dog treats, and other small goods to farmers to the other side of town. Google X is in the process of exploring different methods to develop the technology to make a safe and efficient delivery system a real possibility. Though even with two years invested, it could be a few more until the technology can be used as a public service.
