If you’re based in Australia’s capital city of Canberra, you might be able to get your morning coffee delivered via a drone. Wing, a company that’s a graduate of Google’s X program, has begun offering drone deliveries for food and coffee in three suburbs just outside Canberra. The company says that it has tested this service more than 3,000 times over the past year and a half. It’s now rolling out the service to “a limited set of eligible homes.”
Customers in the suburbs of Crace, Palmerston, and Franklin in addition to those in nearby neighborhoods will be able to get drone deliveries “in the coming weeks and months,” according to the company.
Only a limited range of products can be ordered through this service. This includes some food and other over-the-counter items in addition to coffee. The partners that are working with Wing on this include Drummond Golf, Capital Chemist, Kickstart Expresso, Bakers Delight, and more.
Wing is working with locals to ensure that the service takes off in a smooth fashion. “Wing strongly believes that by working together with local policymakers, regulators, and communities, we can improve access to services, open up new economic opportunities, and better connect our cities,” it says.
