The future is here, and boy could it be spicy. Alphabet’s Project Wing introduced Monday that it will start delivering burritos to hungry customers via jingle. That’s right, you can soon have divine manna slathered in Australian Jack port cheese dropped right on your head â? that is, if you happen to live in the borders of the Australian Capital Territory.
Project Wing, one of Alphabet’s “moonshot factories” under the X umbrella, can be testing delivery drones and has chosen the relatively remote area for the latest voyage into the tinfoil-wrapped unfamiliar. In addition to Mexican food from a string, the company will also ferry medication for a pharmacy. Â
So, one particular imagines, your Tums and pico de gallo can be timed to reach simultaneously. Â
The company furthermore grabbed headlines in 2016 along with drones delivering burritos at Va Tech. Apparently, someone at the corporation has a thing for the densely packed food with an undeniably high deliciousness-to-weight percentage.
“Guzman y Gomez, the Mexican food chain, and Chemist Warehouse, a chain of medical stores, will receive orders from our testers whoâve purchased items using the Task Wing app on their smartphones, inch Project Wing’s James Ryan Burgess explained on the company blog. “Weâll dispatch our drones to pick up the particular order from our partnersâ? loading websites and then transport and deliver the products to testers at their homes. “
The out-of-the-way Australian area was selected specifically because it is, actually so out there. It seems that at least several local residents were down to take part as a way to reduce their time invested in the car. Â
“Residents close to our testing area on the borders of the ACT live an idyllic country lifestyle on 10-acre obstructs of rolling land spotted along with gum trees and horses, inch added Burgess. “But they encounter a 40-minute round trip within the car for almost anything, whether itâs a carton of milk, vegetables for dinner, or a cup of coffee. Our testers, including young families, busy experts and retirees, had many recommendations for how our technology could tackle this fundamental inconvenience. “
Ah yes, the fundamental inconvenience of getting burritos (and, sure, medicine) far from wherever you are. Project Side is clearly focused on making the planet a better place. Â
So, whenever â? if ever â? will this particular lunch-altering tech come to your city and/or hamlet? Burgess doesn’t precisely say, but you can rest assured that should the particular tests go well, the company will probably test the tech again (and again) â? maybe closer to your house. Â
Until then, you’ll simply have to stick to terrestrial-based delivery like the associated with us. Â
