Zipline and Novant Health Launch Long-Range Drone Deliveries in North Carolina

Recommended Posts


Imagine what this will do to “Trucking” as we know it today

Maybe Amazon will buy this company and set up nationwide (for now) physical warehouses called “Routers” where “Packets” (Packages w/ payloads)  (under 30lbs each for now) are routed physically similar to how we route them via TCP/IP using drones/robots to make “last mile” deliveries

never mind  that 30lb. limit…. I’m seeing drone PLANES in this picture as well….. Woohoo…. We’re talking Jetson’s level now

      The drones can deliver blood or other medical supplies up to 50 miles away.

      From fighting wildfires to inspecting pipelines to spying on poachers, aerial drones have been put to all sorts of uses. And now they're helping save human lives. In 2016 a Silicon Valley startup began using its drones to deliver blood in the East African nation of Rwanda — and the company plans to bring the service to the U.S. later this year.
      Made by Zipline in Half Moon Bay, California, the battery-powered drones look like small planes and weigh about 25 pounds. They fly at speeds of up to 80 miles an hour and can deliver up to four pounds of blood or other medical supplies over distances of up to 50 miles.
