Homing Pigeons Faster than Broadband!
This is wonderful! A company in South Africa is going to begin using homing pigeons to transfer data between its two offices, which are roughly 50 miles apart. Currently they use broadband to transfer about 4GB of encrypted data between the facilities. It takes about six hours to transfer the data. Instead, they’ll put the data on a small card and attach it to the leg of a homing pigeon, and they figure the data transfer will be completed in less than an hour.
