Zipline is a company with a great mission: to “provide every human on Earth with instant access to vital medical supplies.” They are achieving this using unmanned aircraft, known as drones. These drones are stocked with the requested supplies and then launched to fly to the clinic where they are needed. The care package is dropped by parachute at the clinic and the supplies are available for immediate use. This TED talk discusses the idea in more detail.
