Project Loon

by | Jun 23, 2014 | Technology & Business

Have you heard about the Google Project Loon? Well for those of you who have not heard about it, its a project of Google under its Google X ‘moonshot’ ventures to spread internet access around the world in a more cheaper way specially those underserved areas across the world by putting giant internet-providing balloons way up in the sky.

I am closely monitoring this technology ever since in started last year since this might be one of the answer of our internet access problem here in the Philippines. Last April this year Google announced that one of its Project Loon balloons had lapped the globe in 22 days, and the project as a whole has clocked over 500,000 kilometers. At the moment they are continuing to do research flights to improve the technology.

If you are wondering how do the balloons last for so long up in the sky, check out the video below from Google.
