    Chipotle to test burrito delivery by drone with Project Wing at Virginia Tech. :yes: :buffet:

    Alphabet’s innovation lab X has a drone-focused team called Project Wing which has just announced a plan to commence aerial burrito delivery, in partnership with Chipotle, on the campus of Virgina Tech next week.
    Project Wing’s mission it to make fully autonomous, or self-flying drones, that can deliver anything to anyone. But the X team is focused, for now, on delivering small packages in the U.S. and elsewhere.
    It made a first run in 2014 in Queensland, Australia, delivering a first aid kit, candy bars, dog treats and water to farmers.

    Over the course of the burrito-delivery tests, Wing’s aircraft will fly autonomously over hundreds of meters of open ground on a closed testing site, navigating from a loading area to a delivery area. Students and employees will be invited to participate in the tests, ordering from a kiosk and waiting in a designated area for their food.
    Chipotle will have a food truck on site where it will prepare the orders.
    The Wing drones (unmanned aerial systems) will hover above a designated delivery area and lower the burritos in their packaging to the ground.

    Are they switching to drones because drones don't sue when they don't get paid?

    This might get a little messy since I always order burrito bowls.

    Designated delivery area? What if there are thugs waiting there, ready to mug me for my burrito? Make sure you bring your firearms!

    What a waste of time.

    Using drones so some fat-ass can get his fucking burrito without moving an inch.

    No wonder our country is so fucking fat.
