In the space between the network of highways and the internet a new kind of connectivity is developing. Matternet is still in its infancy but has great potential to become the future of transportation. Today the Matternet is able to deliver a payload of 2 kg. over 10 km. in 15 minutes with a cost of only 24 cents using automated flying drones. This may not sound too impressive until you listen to Andreas Raptopoulos' TEDTalk demonstrating how vital that can be for the 1 billion people who are cut of from the world for parts of the year due to seasonal phenomena.
