Who here wants drone delivered burritos?!?!?!

Google parent company Alphabet is teaming up with fast casual chain Chipotle to test drone delivery for Virginia Tech students, according to a report from Bloomberg. The pilot program marks a turning point for Alphabet’s Project Wing division, giving the team ample room to experiment with airborne burrito deliveries in one of the first commercial programs of its kind to be greenlit by the US Federal Aviation Authority. The drones, which will be hybrid aircraft that can both fly and hover in place, will make deliveries coordinated by a Chipotle food truck on campus.

Quote

Project Wing chose to partner with Chipotle because it presented unique challenges: could a drone adequately deliver food using a winch system, and can the food remain hot throughout flight with special packaging? "It sounds simple, but it’s not," said Timothy Sands, Virginia Tech’s president. "There are a lot of things to work out from a safety point of view and a policy point of view." The program will be accessible to select Virginia Tech employees and students.

 

All parties involved stand to gain something from the project. Because Virginia Tech is part of the Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership, it's been chosen as of six schools to be used as a testing ground for commercial drone use. The school hopes these types of pilot programs will help it became a leader in new transportation technologies, like drone delivery.

Project Wing, on the other hand, gets valuable data to help it develop a second-generation version of its aircraft and better hone its automated flight system and delivery mechanisms. (The team is one of many working with NASA to develop a state-of-the-art air traffic control system for UAVs.) The FAA will also use the data Project Wing generates to improve its commercial drone guidelines. And students? They get burritos ferried to them in the sky, a dorm room dream come true.

The future is a beautiful thing.

I live in southern California, and burritos are everywhere...

It very much depends on WHICH burrito you order. Some pizzas are awful, doesn't make them all bad.

None of the ones I've tried have been very appealing.

Nah steak is where it's at. Never had anything but steak for protein there and I've been eating there for years. Steak, black beans, brown rice, hot and mild salsa, corn, cheese, goc, and lettuce. The dollar extra makes it 2x better. Also they love me (sarcasm). Them "Do you need another burrito?"(to wrap around the one falling apart)? Me "Yes".

Hah, I was talking about homemade. When I go to Chipotle I get steak, black beans, brown rice, and hot and mild salsa. Although I do think I like chicken burritos a bit more, just gotta have a bit of BBQ sauce in there when prepping the chicken.
