And it's not the first time the World Cup created technology challenges:

Audio awareness - a winner at the 2010 FIFA World Cup

Thanks, Rich, for reminding us of the vuvuzela from the 2010 World Cup. It doesn't seem prevalent this time. That's a blessing. Maybe the engineers figured out how to block the sound from the broadcast, as mentioned in this story: Buenos notches - the Filter Wizard vs. the vuvuzela

I'm very curious to see what Brazil does with all of this fiber line, antennae, and small cells post-Olympics (not to mention the stadiums). I think the country will need to severly decrease its import tax on foreign phones or increase its manufacturing power to create higher-tier devices.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
