Not the most in-depth of articles, but does contain the interesting insight that the Google drone design is “a hybrid of a plane and a helicopter that takes off vertically, then rotates to a horizontal position for flying around. The drones will lower products to the ground using a tether featuring a little bundle of electronics at the end that detect when a package has hit the ground”. This is of course the new battleground between Amazon, with its Prime Air division, and Google as they both look to step further into the logistics arena.
