Project Wing

In case you thought Amazon was alone in working on a system for automated high-speed air delivery, Google recently unveiled Project Wing, their own entry into the field.

Unlike Amazon’s automated delivery service, Google’s Project Wing was developed mostly with emergency supplies (like food, water, or medicine) in mind. In fact, the project originated as a way to get emergency defibrillators to heart attack sufferers on short notice, before this avenue was abandoned due to complications involving 9-1-1 and other public emergency services.

Now, the sky is basically the limit on what Google plans to do with Project Wing, but whatever it is will have to go through a lengthy legal process given the current amount of regulation on United States skies currently on the books. But if any company could ever get around or help to change those regulations, it’s Google.

You can check out the official introduction to Google’s Project Wing in the video below. Stay tuned for more on Project Wing as it develops.
