Creepy or cool? By 2017, drones flying overhead will be so quiet you won't even know they're there.

That's according to a Google executive, who was recently chatting about drones at an Aero Club conference. He says the technology to deliver packages to your door with drones is already in place, and it's really quiet.

Dave Vos says Google[x]'s Project Wing is ready to go, from a technological standpoint (see video next page). Google wants to use Project Wing's drones to deliver products to you.

Vos says that'll be happening by 2017. The one problem is government regulations, according to Vos. The Federal Aviation Administration, which regulates drones, has been slow to issue regulations.
