Crop spraying drones help Chinese farmers fly into the future


Drones were used to spray cotton fields with pesticide in Xinjiang, covering an area of more than 400,000 hectares. Farmers benefit significantly by replacing manual farming with machinery as drones are able to cover 40 times the area a human would be able to spray in a single day.

  • These Electronic Tattoos Allow Wearers to Pilot Drones

    This electronic tattoo allows wearers to control a drone or play video games by sensing muscle movements. Rotex, a Chinese-American tech startup, showed off their invention at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Rotex has developed one of the world's thinnest and softest biometric sensors which can detect electrical signals from muscle movement and translate them into orders for computerised gadgets. The current version of the patch is disposable, although the company is already working on a tattoo that will last for one week. Imagine being able to pilot drones and play games all with the flick of your finger across your arm.

  • Now You Can Fly Drones with Augmented Reality

    Technology is moving at such a rapid pace that it can be quite hard to keep up with all the new inventions. Drone have become a mainstay in popular culture in the last few years, but some scientists and engineers from Russia's Voronezh State University may have just invented a new way to pilot them. This drone prototype is designed to be flown with the help of augmented reality glasses that allow the wearer to guide the motion of the quadcopter simply by looking in the direction that he or she wants the drone to go. The team began working on the product began seven years ago but have only now reached the point of testing out their prototype model. With the success of their prototype, the team is now working on improving usability and design, with the hope of exporting their product abroad.

All of which can be sent to a server that isn't exclusively controlled by the drone manufacturer. Information such as flight and operations data could reveal where, when, who, and why a drone is being used.

  • Trump's Tough-Talking Rhetoric On China May Backfire In Re-Election Campaign
