Amazon is not the only company hoping to deliver with drones. Project Wing, which was recently announced by Google, is about developing a delivery system that uses drones. Google has been testing self-flying vehicles in Australia and delivered a first aid kid, dog treats, and water to farmers. Google is just getting started, but it shows where we are headed.
Pulling this off still remains a challenge. Safety and regulatory issues are going to have to be dealt with in the upcoming years. But underestimating Google’s effort in this space is not wise.
