The latest ‘Pokémon Go’ event is all about rock

With the one year anniversary of Pokémon Go approaching, Niantic and the Pokémon Company have launched (another) in-game event called Adventure Week. From May 18th until May 25th, trainers will encounter an increasing number of Rock-type Pokémon, including Omanyte, Kabuto and their “Evolutions.” Players will also be more likely to see rare Rock critters, including Aerodactyl, Onix and Sudowoodo, the companies say.

On top of the whole Rock thing, more items will be available at each PokéStop, and Buddy Pokémon only have to walk a quarter the usual distance to find Candy. The company has also launched a new avatar wardrobe item, the Aventurer’s Hat, available to all trainers for free.

The Adventure Week, which mirrors other recent events, should keep the game’s user base satisfied for now. After second generation pokémon reignited interest in the game, players are now anticipating big new changes, possibly in time for the first anniversary. Niantic is reportedly working on new gym changes to make battles more interesting, and introducing “raids,” legendary pokémon and more. Despite the falloff in play, there are reportedly still 65 million users around the globe, so the franchise is still a big moneymaker for Niantic.

UK drone rules will require you to take safety tests

UK drone rules will require you to take safety tests

US officials might be easing up on drone regulations, but their UK counterparts are pushing forward. The British government has instituted rules that require you to not only register any robotic aircraft weighing over 250g (0.55lbs), but to take a "safety awareness" test to prove you understand the drone code. Regulators hope that this will lead to fewer drones flying over airports and otherwise causing havoc in British skies. Not that they're taking any chances -- the UK is also planning wider use of geofencing to prevent drones from flying into dangerous airspace.

The new rules come following a study highlighting the dangers of wayward drones. A smaller drone isn't necessarily safer than its larger alternatives, for example -- many of those more compact models have exposed rotors that can do a lot of damage. A drone weighing around 400 g (0.88lbs) can crack the windscreen of a helicopter, while all but the heaviest drones will have trouble cracking the windscreen of an airliner (and then only at speeds you'd expect beyond the airport). While you might not cause as much chaos as some have feared, you could still create a disaster using a compact drone.

It's nothing new to register drones, of course, and it doesn't appear to have dampened enthusiasm in the US. The test adds a wrinkle, though: how willing are you to buy a drone if you know you'll have to take a quiz? The test likely won't slow sales too much, if at all, but it could give people one more reason to pause before buying a drone on impulse. Manufacturers appear to be in favor of the new rulebook, at any rate -- DJI tells the BBC that the UK is striving for a "reasonable" solution that balances safety with a recognition of the advantages that drones can bring to public life.
