Google, patented drone that goes to work for you. Photo

In Google's new patent, a drone is described that could replace humans in the office in the future. It will also be used in the medical field

There's a dream millions of people hope to achieve: staying home and sending someone else to work in their place. Thanks to the foresight of Google, this wish would not be so far from being fulfilled.

The Mountain View-based company, in fact, would be working on a drone that in the future could replace us in the office. The new project of Google has jumped out of a patent published a few hours ago by the US Patent and Trademark Office. It would be a device capable of flying inside offices and buildings and equipped with some features designed to help a person to collaborate with his colleagues even at a distance. The drone, in fact, would be able to move from one room to another and, compared to traditional robots, would also be very agile. The technology, therefore, would allow you to work remotely, while staying quietly at home.

Google's office drone

The office drone that Google would like to realize, according to what you can guess from the new patent, has some interesting technical specifications. The robotic aircraft is a quadricopter that could carry a smartphone aloft. Its control would be entrusted precisely to the mobile device. The drone could also include a screen and a system that serves to project images (such as those of its owner) on the walls. Also surprising is the shape of the smart device: as you can see from the patent, the Google drone will have an H shape (as shown by the images in the photo gallery above). Quasi sicuramente sarà costruito con materiali leggeri e avrà un sistema audio video avanzato.

Sarà usato anche in campo medico

Google continua dunque a sfornare progetti, come dimostra il suo ultimo brevetto. Se un giorno il quadricottero sarà mai realizzato potrebbe essere impiegato in numerosi settori. Pensiamo, ad esempio, alla medicina. Potrebbe aiutare i dottori a consultarsi a distanza riguardo alla salute dei pazienti. Non ci sono al momento indicazioni se e quando la tecnologia sarà sviluppata. Si tratta infatti solo un brevetto, che però non impedisce di sognare: un giorno al lavoro potremmo mandare un robot.
