Hungry for Burritos? Order via your smartphone and watch them fall off the sky

Developed by Darwin Aerospace, the Burrito Bomber is a revelation in the space of food delivery. It’s as fast as ordered food delivery can get. Here’s how this express hunger quenching system works. The customers send their order to the Bomber web app via their smartphone. Servers utilize the phone’s GPS to recognize its position. Subsequently, a waypoint file is generated for the drone.  The burrito is loaded into a custom made tube which is deployed down onto the customer’s location by a parachute.

As of now, a green signal has not been issued by the FAA for commercial use of drones but a working prototype has been developed by the research lab.

A little about the bomber. The drone is a SkyWalker X8 equipped with a burrito release mechanism and is controllable manually via video as well as automatically using the autopilot mode. was created using open source projects and all the code and 3D models are on the GitHub page so others can build one too. Have a look at the video below to see it in action.
