Alphabet to Launch Drone Delivery Service in Finland

Google's parent company, Alphabet, says they're launching a drone delivery service in Finland next year. Using drones developed in their their long running "Project Wing" experiment, Alphabet's drones will be supposedly able to autonomously deliver "food, medicine and other items just minutes after they are requested." The company has already spent 18 months trialing the service in Australia, delivering burritos at first and other items more recently. Alphabet published a video of their Australian service, which you can see below:

Finns are internationally renowned for being early-adopters of new technologies, and we're looking forward to working with the community and local businesses to find the best way to implement our services in the Helsinki area. Based on what we know about the winter weather in Finland, we're pretty confident that if our drones can deliver here, they can deliver anywhere!
