We Have Liftoff: Google Set To Launch WiFi Producing Balloons
The world is looking for new ways to obtain Internet access, and Google is looking to literally launch a new way to provide Internet, as the tech giant is set to send WiFi producing balloons in the sky.
Google will fill the sky with these balloons, which will provide billions of people with WiFi access.
Known as Project Loon, short for balloon, the helium-filled balloons will be 12 miles into space and provide those below with Internet access.
The program is currently being tested in New Zealand.
This will provide areas with Internet that previously didn’t have feasible ways to access the web.
The system isn’t perfect yet, but it is a work in progress, and could one day provide the whole world with Internet access.
