Golf Course Trials Flytrek Delivery Drone To Delivery Food To 19th Hole

It has been a long while since I hit up the fairways. Apparently, things have changed quite a bit. One of the changes is, golfers can actually order drinks and food as the game proceeds on the fairway. Clearly, it was not something the follow up team of golfers would not be amused. Over at King’s Walk Golf Course in North Dakota, U.S.A., special buggy has been delivering refreshments to golfers, but it is not without its caveat. During peak times, the much needed refreshment may take as long as an hour to reach golfers. Well, that was then. King’s Walk is piloting a new delivery using Israel-based Flytrex delivery drone that could slash the wait time significantly.

So yeah, Mendiola is a dancer-turn-amateur engineer. Continue reading This ‘Drone Car’ Might Just Be What Congested Cities Need
