    A four-wheeled drone’s first aerial package delivery test showed off a special touch by also driving up to the doorstep of its pretend customer. That capability to deliver by both air and land makes the Panther drone an unusual competitor in the crowded drone delivery space. But the drone’s limited delivery range may pose a challenge in competing against the delivery drones of Google and Amazon. Unlike most delivery drones designed purely for flight, the Panther drone resembles a...
  2. An IBM Patent on Midair Handoffs for Delivery Drones

    Amazon and Google’s dreams of delivery drones dropping off packages or pizza still face the problem of short delivery ranges.

  5. Tesla Model S takes driving to the 21st century

    The Tesla Model S not only looks good, it drives exceedingly well while running with electric efficiency, but we would like to see more of the driver-assistance features found on comparably priced cars. An unearthly amount of grip held the car through the twisty strip of asphalt running along the side of a forested mountain, and when I got on the accelerator for the turn exits, I was rewarded with instantaneous power, as much as the car and my own instincts could handle. If this were a...

The statements were...
