Google is developing own drones

Google Inc. is taking its rivalry against Inc. to the skies.

The search giant’s X laboratory division is developing drones that can handle deliveries, a move that would be in direct competition with the e-commerce company that is testing its own shipment service using self-flying machines.

Google’s initiative, called Project Wing, aims to use drones to drop off goods quickly, the Mountain View, California-based company said in an e-mail yesterday. It will take a few years before the system is ready for commercial use, Google said.

Do you think that drones are useful for the above-mentioned purpose?
