This Bill Gates-backed startup says it just knocked down one of the last things stopping drones from taking over the world
Echodyne did a successful test of a detect-and-avoid test with a drone.
One of these new technologies might be regarded as a “game changer'... but if two or three of them are successful, then the result might just be a revolution.
Stephen Hawking and Russian billionaire Yuri Milner are launching a $100-million initiative to send 100-million-mile-an-hour bots to Alpha Centauri
The $100 million initiative intends to develop light-propelled nanobots to get us to Alpha Centauri, the next closest star system to our Solar System.
