Google wants to coat the world in internet!
Google’s newest project, Project Loon, so named for it’s absurdity, will see thousands of high altitude balloons go up into the stratosphere and, hopefully, they will provide internet access to anyone below within a 12-25 mile radius.
The project will give aproximately 5 billion people who currently have either a slow internet connection, an expensive fast internet connection, or no internet at all a 3g - or better - wifi connection.
