Google’s delivery drones – level 3

10-09-2014 15:00

Google has revealed the first prototype of their delivery drone which is set to rival Amazon’s Prime Air.

The drones which look like mini airplanes will be capable of flying on their own and delivering everything from sweets to medicine.

The effort, which Google calls Project Wing, will take years of development to create a service with multiple vehicles flying numerous deliveries per day.

“Project Wing aspires to take another big chunk of the remaining friction out of moving things around in the world.”

The project represents the web giant’s latest effort to expand its reach beyond webpages and into the real world with projects including self-driving cars, solar-powered balloons and same-day home delivery services.

Last year, Google’s rival Amazon announced plans to use aerial drones to offer customers high-speed delivery.

Difficult words: drone (unmanned aircraft), numerous (many), aspire (has plans to do something), chunk (piece).
