Your favorite food is cleared for takeoff.
How many times have you sat home alone, longing for a burrito to magically fall into your lap?
Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc. totally gets your struggle. That’s why they’ve partnered with Chipotle to test burrito drone delivery. I repeat: burrito. drone. delivery.
We were promised flying cars, and instead we got flying burritos… I’ll take it. https://t.co/nQLIob0aTZ
It’s simple, really. Just order a burrito on a special kiosk and watch as it’s flown in and lowered to the ground via a tether. (I’ve had this exact dream, scene-for-scene, many times before.)
They’re currently testing in Blacksburg, Virginia, on Virginia Tech’s campus. You can check out a video of it all in action, which shows a drone dropping the package a little too aggressively for cargo as precious as a burrito. I certainly wouldn’t want to see guacamole and chips treated that way.
What does this mean for the future of takeout? Will we soon live in a world where pizza grows wings and swoops down from the heavens from whence it came? The future is awesome.
