Google Also Plans To Hasten Robot Apocalypse With Delivery Drones

Not content to sit idly by while the likes of Amazon, UPS, DHL, and others work to bring about the inevitable robot apocalypse, Google announced last night that it too is getting into the delivery-drones-of-doom game with its Project Wing flying machines.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Google has been working on the development of Project Wing, a 5-foot wide, 4-propeller drone since 2011.

As revealed in the above video, the company recently did some test deliveries with the machine — before whom we will eventually bow down in supplication — in Queensland, Australia, carrying a first aid kit, candy bars, dog treats, and water to some farmers.

“We’re only just beginning to develop the technology to make a safe delivery system possible, but we think that there’s tremendous potential to transport goods more quickly, safely and efficiently,” reads the statement on the video.

Google says Project Wing is still “years” from becoming an actual product but that the company believes this prototype is first step in the right direction… toward the destruction of humankind.
