This is a proposal to build a physical analog to the internet for transportation. The current design can transmit 2kg loads for 10km at a cost under 24 cents. If deployed hierarchically, i.e. with larger vehicles delivering bigger payloads over longer distances, then it could scale in a cost effective way (i.e. better than linear). Its exciting to see autonomous vehicles (whether land or air borne) transform transportation in the near future.

How van Gogh saw his paintings.
Vincent van Gogh was deficient in color vision. His paintings look different when viewed in light with an altered color spectrum, that makes his paintings look to us the way they looked to him. He had a form of color vision deficiency called protanomaly, which alters the sensitivity of red receptors and affects red-green color discrimination.
