Drones are one of the hottest areas for startups.Amazon is developing leveransdrönare to fly out packages to customers, and during the CES show last winter, was presented including the world's first persondrönare, therefore, a kind of enmannsmultikopter.I have a little difficult to see that the idea of personal transport with the drones will fly pun intended .But the swede Axel Borg is, however, considerably more alert to the idea.The tenth clip, where it is up to the evidence for the chair, has over a half million views on videoplattformen.We contacted him to hear how it went.
Amazon is currently testing its Prime Air drones in the UK to avoid FAA regulations, but while the UAV program may not arrive on US shores for some time, the online retail giant will soon be launching its first branded cargo airplane: Amazon One.The company is showcasing the Boeing 767-300 this weekend at Seattle s SeaFair Air Show.It will be flown and operated by Atlas Air Worldwide, which provides Amazon s air cargo services.The cargo plane, which displays the Prime Air and Amazon smile logos, is one of 40 Boeing 767s that the company is leasing from Atlas and its other cargo partner, Air Transport Services Group.There are currently 11 dedicated planes flying for the company, with the remainder rolling out over the coming years.Creating an air transportation network is expanding our capacity to ensure great delivery speeds for our Prime members for years to come, said Dave Clark, Amazon s senior vice president of worldwide operations, in a press release.
Amazon's sort of launched its own airline, rebranding an existing Boeing 767 jet operated by US flier Atlas Air as the Amazon One Prime Air special delivery plane.It's mission: to fly Terry's Chocolate Oranges, discount SSDs and PlayStation 4 shooting games to where they're needed most -- everywhere.Knowing that this might be considered newsworthy by the internet, Amazon had the painting process timelapsed:Amazon's done deals with Atlas and one of its rivals Air Transport Services Group to fly its things around the US, which will see the everything-seller soon have 40 dedicated cargo planes solely carrying its goods through the skies.Amazon will be using the services to deliver items cross country and also move its inventory between locations, with Amazon US operations VP Dave Clark saying: "We have the ability, with our own planes, to create connections between one point and another point that are exactly tailored to our needs, and exactly tailored to the timing of when we want to put packages on those routes -- versus other peoples' networks which are optimized to run their entire network.We add capacity, we add flexibility and it gives us cost-control capability as well."

Samsung VR experience for 2016 Olympic GamesIf you cannot get a seat in the Rio de Janeiro Maracana Stadium to watch the 2016 Olympic Games, fret not as Samsung can help you.The tech giant is offering viewers the best place to watch games with its virtual reality headset that can transport you to Brazil.The South Korean tech major has teamed up with Comcast's NBCUniversal and the Olympic Broadcasting Services to distribute its first VR Olympic broadcast for select events such as the opening and closing ceremonies, diving, basketball, track and field and gymnastics.Virtual reality is expected to bring a whole new experience in all fields starting from gaming to sports and communication.The technology is still in the nascent stage and tech firms are yet to figure out ways to make money out of it.
Amazon is showing again that it s in an e-commerce league of its own.The e-commerce giant has announced the creation of its own air cargo delivery network, using 40 Boeing 767s that Amazon will lease from two air transport companies.It s adorned with Prime Air on the fuselage, and the jet s tail features Amazon s signature smile logo and a prime number as identification — N1997A, which also references the year Amazon went public.In tonight s news release, Amazon s senior vice president of worldwide operations, Dave Clark, says creating an air transportation network is expanding our capacity to ensure great delivery speeds for our Prime members for years to come.When rumors of Amazon s air cargo network first surfaced late last year, the Seattle Times reported that Amazon was frustrated with shipping delays involving United Parcel Service UPS , especially during the 2013 holiday season when many Amazon customers received their orders after Christmas.The Times says Amazon had to refund shipping costs and offer affected customers a $20 gift card.
Eh, it s not currently very clear, as was recently proven by the Apple/FBI battle over unlocking one of the San Bernardino shooters iPhones and the death of secure email service Lavabit after its founder refused to produce its Secure Sockets Layer SSL private keys for an FBI probe.If you re ever asked to do something like this, you have a lot of strong legal arguments to say no, said Jennifer Granick, the Director of Civil Liberties at the Stanford Center for Internet and Society in a Black Hat talk on Thursday.You need to be thinking through these design decisions, Pfefferkorn added.Finally toward the end of the talk, Granick said, End-to-end encryption is legal.This is a presidential candidate, after all, whose idea of securing classified emails was to keep them on a server in her basement, and when asked if she d wiped that computer, responded with a cloth or something?And from Braun s opening remarks, he used the Russian breach of the Democratic National Committee revealed last month and Trump s recent invitation for those Russian hackers to leak Hillary Clinton s emails as a rallying cry for Clinton, and a point against a candidate with a dangerous ignorance of cybersecurity issues.
It wasn't so much the word, but its position that caused New Jersey photojournalist Lori Nichols to turn her car around on a highway near Atlantic City close to midnight to snap a photo."When I had a chance to call the local police department, Hamilton Township in Atlantic County, it was around noon or 1pm, a person I spoke to did chuckle a little bit when I asked about the sign.Yet, the prankster who seemingly gained easy access to an unlocked panel at the back of the sign could have typed out "mass shooting ahead" or "terrorist threat in area", and produced an entirely different outcome.It's only a matter of time before hackers become interested in smart city transportation clouds.But everything indicates that in the future they will become common because cyber threats are continually evolving."As technology gets widely adopted, cybercriminals get more familiar with it and get more resources.
The retailer plans to roll out 40 aircraft for the service in the next two yearsHolding out the promise of quicker deliveries to its customers, Amazon.com on Thursday unveiled Amazon One, the company s first branded air cargo plane.The online retailer said the first branded aircraft will be showcased over the weekend at the Seafair Air Show in Seattle.The Boeing 767-300, seen in this video being painted with the Amazon logos, is one of 40 airplanes that the company has agreed to lease through air cargo partners Atlas Air and Air Transport Services Group and will be rolling out over the next couple of years.Amazon currently has 11 dedicated airplanes flying for it, with Amazon One the first in the fleet to be branded, Amanda Ip, an Amazon spokeswoman, wrote in an email.The company s entry into air logistics suggests that it wants greater control and higher efficiency over the movement of its goods at the backend.
Public transport execs ordered to push back against abuseFar from gently wading in the cesspool of Twitter, a Canadian arbitration body has told employers they need to actively push back against trolls.The Toronto Transit Commission TTC was taken through arbitration by its workers union over the abuse some staff were receiving through the TTC's official Twitter customer service account @TTChelps.The union asked the company to act when tweets directed at the account were frequently offensive, profane, racist, homophobic and threatening.It also refused to shut down the account, saying that its customers expected it to have a social media presence.The arbitration panel was not impressed by that line of thinking however, telling the TTC that it has a duty of care to its employees and simply shrugging its shoulders and accepting that people can be needlessly rude and offensive because – you know, Twitter – wasn't enough.

Connected bikes could be huge assets to the future of urban transit, especially as cities and cars grow more connected, too.But smart cycles can be very expensive, and cyclists also tend to be very particular about, and attached to, their bikes.Shoka s new Shoka Bell is an accessory that adds a heavy helping of intelligence to your bike without requiring the purchase of an entirely new one – and it even lays the groundwork for communicating with the smart cities and smart motor vehicles of the future.The Shoka Bell, which is already fully funded on Kickstarter, has a built-in navigation system, a front light, a proximity based motion alarm and yes – a bell.The unit is about the size of an old, somewhat bulky Nokia flip phone, and attaches to any standard bike handlebars via a standard clamp.The internal battery will keep it running for up to 200 hours, and it turns on and off automatically when you start and finish your ride in order to make the most of its onboard powerhouse.
Rio de Janeiro s Maracana Stadium is huge, with more than 78,000 seats from which lucky fans will watch the 2016 Olympic Opening Ceremonies on August 5th.Samsung Electronics Co. is betting the best place to watch is from your couch, with its virtual reality headset to transport you to Brazil.The Korean electronics company has partnered with Comcast Corp. s NBCUniversal and the Olympic Broadcasting Services to distribute the first VR Olympic broadcast of select events -- including the opening and closing ceremonies, diving, basketball, track and field, and gymnastics.VR is seen by many -- like Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg -- as the future of tech.Samsung s investment is training before the Winter Olympics come to its home turf in PyeongChang, South Korea, in 2018.In some ways, Brazil is the perfect testing ground: The Olympics have historically been a showcase for new technologies -- the Los Angeles Games introduced e-mail to a wider audience in 1984 and Seiko debuted its Quartz timing system in Tokyo in 1964, according to the book Olympic Turnaround by Michael Payne.It makes sense for Samsung to get as much early experience with the technology as possible so that it can try to take the lead,  said Morningstar analyst Dan Baker.But Samsung, which has been a top-level Olympic sponsor since 1998, faces a lot of hurdles.While the Suwon-based company has exclusive VR rights through NBC to the 2016 games, only about 80 hours out of the 6,700 hours of programming will be broadcast with the technology.What s more, viewers will need Samsung s Gear VR headset $100 , a Samsung Galaxy smartphone about $850 , a cable subscription and the NBC Sports app.Residents of Brazil, where the games will be broadcast by media conglomerate Globo, will not have access to NBC s VR video.
the Swedish transport administration has got rid of a so-called pokéstop at the authority's communication center.the Swedish transport administration has got company Niantic, who developed the popular mobile game, Pokemon, Go, to remove a so-called pokéstop at the agency's facility in central Stockholm. and with that it is a protected, it is good that it is not running people out, " says John Måhlén, säkerhetshandläggare at the Dmv, to Aftonbladet.However, the company has not responded to the agency's requests to block the game in other places, such as areas of rail at railway stations.But in the latest update of the game, it comes up a box that does not go into restricted areas or similar.

200 electric scooters are heading to the streets of Berlin as part of a new sharing scheme to offer more modes of transport to visitors and residents.Anyone over 21 with a valid driver or motorcycle license will be able to hire one of the Gogoro scooters, which come with basic insurance included in the price – three euro for 30 mins or 20 euro for a full day.The scooters can do around 28mph and come with a digital dashboard, with the hiring system run from within an official app.Users will be able to pull up a map that shows them the location of available scooters nearby, as unlike other sharing systems such as the Santander Cycles in London there aren t central stations to pick up and drop off the bikes – they can be parked anywhere within any neighbourhood taking part in the Berlin trial.It s the first time Gogoro has expanded outside of its native Taiwan, and the Berlin system will have some differences too.To begin with, special engineers will be dispatched to service and change the batteries of the scooters when their level drops below 20%.
Devon and Cornwall police are investigating the mysterious placement of 40 dead pigeons at regular intervals along the the middle of the A35 near Honiton.As well as the police, the RSPB has been called into investigate the overnight appearance of the deceased, no-more, bereft-of-life ex-pigeons, which is just the latest Avian mystery to befall the British Isles in recent weeks, with ostriches on the prowl in Scotland, and Emus running loose in Suffolk.In a statement, PCSO Steve Mingo from the local neighbourhood team said: "We have found over 40 dead pigeons in the area and they appear to have been deliberately placed in the road for quite some distance, a few hundred yards apart from each other.Nearby we have also found a discarded animal feed bag which we believe was used to transport these dead birds, and a large amount of feathers.Police appeal for information after dozens of dead pigeons placed on a road near Honiton.— DevonCornwall Police @DC Police August 3, 2016
The Rebels sure do love their alphabet ships, don t they?Although we got to see a few Imperial ships in person at Star Wars Celebration a few weeks ago, the weekly YouTube series The Star Wars Show s latest episode has just dropped a new still from Rogue One of the Rebel s base on Yavin IV, featuring our first good look at the newest Alliance ship in the film: the U-Wing.According to Lucasfilm story group creative executive Matt Martin, the U-Wing—or as it is known in-universe, the Incom UT-60D—isn t really a typical fighter like its A-, X-, and Y-Wing counterparts: it s a troop transport and gunship and we know that loveable lil space monkey Bistan is a gunner on one of the U-Wings in the film .However, like the X-Wing, its s-foils can be locked into an alternative position for aerial support scenarios.The ship was actually revealed over a year ago at Celebration 2015 in Anaheim, where concept art of the U-Wing dropping Rebel soldiers into combat was shownat the first ever look at the film:
But you ll also hear the urgent commands of flight attendants telling you to leave your bags behind.Materialism has been winning out over self-preservation as air travelers often ignore the order to drop everything, a fact illustrated in recent years by laden passengers fleeing a burning 777 in San Francisco or a Delta Air Lines Inc. jet that skidded off a snowy New York runway.The latest example came on Wednesday, when an Emirates Airline flight crashed on landing in Dubai, followed by a severe fire that consumed much of the Boeing 777-300.All 282 passengers and 18 crew survived, but an airport firefighter died while battling the blaze.Some airlines have also incorporated the notice about discarding belongings into the pre-flight safety briefing passengers receive.Yet, despite the shock from a crash or skid or cabin smoke and the looming potential for fire, bags remain a powerful lure, seen by some as too precious to leave.This includes helping passengers jump into the emergency slide correctly, said Michael Massoni, operational safety chairperson for the Transport Workers Union Local 556 and a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines Co.
Södertäljebron was injured on midsummer's eve and is still not cooked.Monday, 8 August presents the Swedish transport administration a forecast for when Södertäljebron should be cooked.A contractor has been swapped out for flaws in the work.And one of the owners in the construction sector contracted by the Swedish transport administration has been subject to a trading prohibition, writes SvD. "They're doing repeats now and explore what we have for resources, and how we should go about it," says Lars Lindström, communications officer at the Swedish transport administration.That stalled the repair cost to society of one to two million per day in the form of, for example, lost work and more expensive transport costs, " says KTH professor Jonas Eliasson to SVT in Stockholm.
