Google X, the secretive special projects lab at Google have revealed a drone-based delivery systems called Project Wing.
Now when I first saw this I clearly thought it sounded alot like Amazon's Prime Air but watching the video you can clearly see alot of design differences between the 2 drones.
Project Wing doesn't actually land, it hovers high up in the air and then lowers the package to the ground.
This, like Amazon's Prime Air is clearly a prototype and at this moment in time wouldn't be ready or suitable for urban built up areas, especially with the British weather.
Though I think it is an interesting glimpse of a possible future for Ecommerce.
