This country went crazy tweeting about sports in 2016



While the rest of the world chattered about Brexit, the US Presidential Elections and Pokémon GO, India seemed to care largely about sports. And this is barely surprising.

Twitter’s just-released year-in-review reveals that sports dominated other conversation categories by a mile. India has always been a cricket-obsessed nation, but its people are now warming up to other sports as well.

Much in line with global trends, #Rio2016 was the most used hashtag in India too as the country’s ace badminton player #PVSindhu went on to bag an Olympic silver. Sindhu managed to bring together a nation of cricket fanatics to root for her, in turn, becoming a popular hashtag herself. Read more…

Autonomous delivery drone network set to take flight in Switzerland

Matternet has long used Switzerland as a testing ground for its delivery drone technology, and now it's ramping things up a notch. The company has revealed plans to launch the first permanent autonomous drone delivery network in Switzerland, where its flying robot couriers will shuttle blood and pathology samples between hospital facilities. The trick is the Matternet Station you see above: when a drone lands, the Station locks it into place and swaps out both the battery and the cargo (loaded into boxes by humans, who scan QR codes for access). Stations even have their own mechanisms to manage drone traffic if the skies are busy.

And the automation isn't just for the sake of cleverness -- it might be crucial to saving lives. Company chief Andreas Raptopoulos expects the drone network to transfer medical supplies within 30 minutes, and the reliability of a largely automated system means that hospitals don't have to worry about unpredictable delivery times (particularly on the ground).

Don't expect drones to blanket the skies. Matternet explains that there will only be one or two drones per network, and expansions to Germany and the UK will only happen once it's comfortable with Switzerland. The company got permission to fly over densely populated urban areas in March, if you want a sense of the time scales involved. Still, this is an honest-to-goodness example of a practical drone delivery network, and one performing crucial tasks at that -- this isn't just a nice-to-have luxury. If this network succeeds, it might persuade other countries to at least consider allowing drone networks..
