Next month, Walgreens will be partnering with Wing (a company affiliated with Google) to test delivery of products by drone in Christianburg Virginia, offering delivery of a relatively limited number of (presumably lightweight) products on a drone capable of lifting a payload of about 3 pounds with a range of around 12 miles. The location was selected due to its close proximity to Virginia Tech, which has been working with Wing on drone technology.
