Drone Wing Delivery

A few days ago I linked to a paid part about delivery drones: the short story with the FAA on board through evolutionary (and less dense) controls, increasing delivery by drones.

  • Drone delivery was a talking point in the mid-2010s. I think a lot of people have seen or heard of Amazon doing this through 60 Minutes in 2013, the promised packages will knock on your door at a faster pace.
  • Amazon Prime Air Video, where the first full customer delivery took place in December 2016, which Jeff Bezos tweetedThere was a big moment that felt like progress.
  • Then came the inevitable desert of drone supplies: the hype was too big, things were slow. A 2019 pitch from Amazon executive Jeff Wilk says drone deliveries will be “within months.”
  • A horrible picture has been painted WiredAbout Amazon’s fight for Prime Air in the UK in 2021.

But things are happening:

  • The latest is Wing, a real, active drone-delivery service that is part of the Alphabet and active in Australia and Finland, launching a new run in the Dallas-Fort Worth area via Walgreens:
  • “Walgreens করবে will deliver from a store parking lot in Little Elm, Texas. Using Wing’s drone-delivery app, customers will be able to choose from over 100 items, including over-the-counter medications and household necessities, a Walgreens spokesman said.
  • Delivery is via a rope and hook system: the wing drone carries goods up to 65mph, up to 3.3 pounds. One person attaches the delivery box to the drone hook, the drone reels it, and then similarly lowers the packages to the ground for pickup.
  • It’s great that prescriptions can be found, for example, quickly and easily, and pet prescriptions are possible through non-Walgreen alternatives through the wing.
  • There is also talk of getting ice cream, which is the truth of 2022 lifestyle.


  • The thing about drones is that they are not really in cities, but in more regional and rural areas, contrary to the general technological trend.
  • In places like Kenya and North Carolina, the choice of zipline in medicine, the vaccine in Ghana and Walmart in Arkansas.
  • Manna flies 2,000-3,000 flights a day to Ireland.
  • There are many more, but common sense is that there are a bunch of places where these drones are completely normal.
  • But the FAA needs pilot oversight, and built-up cities are not yet part of the operation, meaning the vast majority of people are wondering where their drones are.

It’s clever: The New York Times has a new one WordleBotWhich will give you some welcome feedback about your strategy / passively-aggressively insult your strategy.

  • The idea: “I’ll test your puzzle and tell you, if anything, I’d do it differently.”
  • So in a nutshell, complete Wordle the way you normally would, then open the Wordle bot page for some feedback.
  • This man Mashable I get annoyed at what I enjoy:
  • “To my colleague, Mashable Australia Editor Caitlin Welsh was equally offended by such a harsh approach to strategy, not because she made a bad guess, but because she actually had a strategy and WordleBot was too ignorant to see it. ‘Sorry WordleBot,’ he said, ‘my third guess today is that I did exactly what I wanted to do, which was to make sure the letter was placed? It wasn’t ‘Waste!’
