Robots to begin delivering mail around Switzerland

If you weren't convinced that we aren't living in the future, news of robotic sentinels delivering mail in Switzerland might help you think otherwise.  Swiss Post has announced that they will be testing out drone mailmen in Bern, Köniz, and Biberist as part of an initiative to improve postal services by speeding up deliveries. According to a Swiss Post statement, the trail is to start in September and it will test the robots' application in "same-day and same-hour delivery, grocery deliveries or even home deliveries of medical products". The pint-sized robots can run up to two hours or six kilometres (3.7 miles), with a cruising speed of about three kilometres per hour, with a maximum speed of six kilometres per hour. They can carry up to 10kg at a time and navigate using nine cameras, four frontal sensors and GPS technology. The trail will be run in partnership with British technology company Starship Technologies, who have outlined the workings of the robot in a neat video.

The best Swiss art galleries and museums

Whether you like your art ancient or modern, classical or contemporary, applied or outsider, there is an eye-popping array of world-class Swiss art galleries and museums. From the Paul Klee and Vitra Design museums to prestigious events like Art Basel, the Swiss art scene is vibrant. With both a collecting culture that stretches back centuries and the planet’s most important annual contemporary fair, Basel city has traditionally been the Swiss scene’s Chanel-clad grand dame, snapping up Warhols and Bacons for her Rhine-side apartment. But worldly Zürich has hit a bold new stride in the last decade, with the immaculate regeneration of the city’s former industrial zone serving up a bevy of cool white cubes where cutting-edge contemporary art from every end of the Earth is making itself right at home. Nor are Geneva and Bern art slouches. Their venerable palaces of painting and plastic arts have long earned their global reputations, and each city also has its own flourishing crop of temples to the contemporary, both civic and indie. And the national art appetite keeps on growing. While Renzo Piano hasn’t been called upon just yet to turn the spectacular Fondation Beyeler he built in Basel and Bern’s Zentrum Paul Klee into a megamuseum hat-trick, major institutions are adding new extensions and taking over bigger buildings, while art spaces are breathing vital new life into urban industrial edifices.
