Google’s Project Loon Is Making Great Progress

It’s easy to raise your brow at big companies when you hear about scandals and lawsuits, but it’s important to keep in mind that some of these giants are also working on innovative technologies that are meant to make our lives easier. A great example is Google’s Project Loon, which was announced officially on June 14, 2013. The project aims to bring “internet for everyone” using balloons, and even though it seemed to be a bit of a long shot at first, Google is actually making great progress with it.

In recent news, the team behind Project Loon posted a brand new video that highlights key aspects concerning balloon manufacturing and partnership agreements with abroad LTE network providers. The most impressive achievements so far include maintaining balloons up in the air for up to 100 days and creating them in only a few hours. This means that Google can now launch a few dozens of balloon each day, which is impressive considering that it could only launch a single one during the project’s early stages. An organized fleet containing thousands of balloons could definitely bring free Wi-Fi into remote areas of the planet where the infrastructure is not quite ready yet.

Are you excited for Project Loon?

Thank you Engadget for providing us with this information.
