Chipotle tests drone deliveries at some universities
NEW YORK (AP) — Flying burritos will soon be a reality over Virginia Tech.
Chipotle is taking part in a test this month that will let some of the university’s students and staff have their favorite tortilla-wrapped meal delivered by drone.
Virginia Tech is conducting the test with Project Wing, a unit of Google owner Alphabet Inc., which makes self-flying devices that deliver food, medicine, and other goods.
Chipotle’s burritos will be put together at a food truck and then loaded on a drone.
Mark Blanks, director of Virginia Tech’s Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership says the flights will take place at an undisclosed site on Virginia Tech property, but not at the main campus in Blacksburg.
