Inside Google's Secret Drone-Delivery Program

Well, we can add drones to the long list of technology that Google is entrenched in. Google Glass, robotics, self driving cars and space travel, now this. What's it all in favour of? An omnipresent web of information, with the infrastructure in place to both collect and react to it. Google wants to own the world, or at least be a part of every facet of it.


A man named Neil Parfitt is standing in a field on a cattle ranch outside Warwick, Australia. A white vehicle appears above the trees, a tiny plane a bit bigger than a seagull. It glides towards Parfitt, pitches upwards to a vertical position, and hovers near him, a couple hundred feet in the air. From its belly, a package comes tumbling downward, connected by a thin line to the vehicle itself. Right before the delivery hits the ground, it slows, hitting the earth with a tap. The delivery slows, almost imperceptibly, just before it hits the ground, hardly kicking up any dust. A small rectangular module on the end of the line detaches the payload, and ascends back up the vehicle, locking into place beneath the nose. As the wing returns to flying posture and zips back to its launch point half a mile away, Parfitt walks over to the package, opens it up, and extracts some treats for his dogs.

The Australian test flight and 30 others like it conducted in mid-August are the culmination of the first phase of Project Wing, a secret drone program that’s been running for two years at Google X, the company’s whoa-inducing, long-range research lab. (Source)
Because this is ATS, I suppose the question needs to be asked… what are the chances that this stuff, the drones, the cars, the robots, will ever become the foundation of a private corporate military?

It will, as soon as some yokel with a shotgun starts banging away at the delivery drone.

Does anybody doubt anymore they are Big Brother? How much more development proof do they need to show you to prove they want to be the running hand from Total Recall? From Johnny Cars to possible doming cities and creating your air, and maybe colonizing Mars, Google Defense is there!
