Last year Facebook unveiled its grand vision for the next ten years. Zuckerberg revealed that the projects would include ecosystems, products, and technologies that would redefine social media sharing and allow everybody to share everything with everyone else. From solar powered drones beaming internet access to a huge project on Artificial Intelligence, Facebook is slowly but surely building all of these in its secret development unit called Building 8. Take a look at the 4 most ambitious futuristic Facebook projects being developed by Facebook to be released over the next ten years.
1 Solar Powered Drones
That’s right. Facebook is building solar-powered drones that will beam Internet connectivity down to earth. The Solar-powered drone named Aquila was completed till testing stage last year where it ran a successful test flight flying at a few thousand feet for 96 minutes in Yuma Arizona. The ultimate goal is to have a fleet of drones that will fly at an altitude of 60,000 feet with the capacity to fly three months at a time. The drones will possess the technology to beam down internet connectivity to every corner of the earth. The project isn’t quite ready with several more test flights to go.
