We’ve got our first good look at Google’s new burrito-delivering drones in action.
The Roanoke Times has got its hands on footage of some of the first public tests of Project Wing — a drone delivery project run by X (formerly Google X), an experimental lab owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet.
The drones are being tested in Virginia, on the Virginia Tech university campus. X has teamed up with Chipotle to deliver burritos. Previous reports say that X intends to use the drone to deliver burritos from a food truck to students, though The Roanoke Times’ footage appears to just show test flights for now, rather than genuine food deliveries. (But there was a food truck close by!)
Google isn’t the only company looking into drone deliveries. Amazon is also very interested in the possibilities of the technology, and is quietly conducting tests at a field in Cambridge, England.
