In the USA, Australia and Finland, the delivery of toilet paper and products by drones has begun. This was written by The Verge with reference to representatives of the Alphabet corporation, which includes Google, which began to engage in delivery through its subsidiary Wing.
Over the past two weeks, Wing drones made at least 1 thousand deliveries to the USA, Australia and Finland. To use this feature, the buyer just needs to install a special Wing application.
Drones can accelerate to a speed of 104 km/h, and to deliver the goods to the buyer they need an area the size of a picnic mat – drones will not land on the ground, but simply lower all purchased products on a rope.
According to Wing, toilet paper, medicine and toothpaste are the most popular among buyers. In addition, people often began to buy Italian pasta and baby food. At the same time, the use of drones is much safer, both for couriers and for buyers, during a pandemic of a coronavirus infection, the company notes.
