Defibrillator Drones – Ambulance of the Future

A graduate in Holland has invented the ‘Ambulance Drone’. Bypassing traffic jams, this can can get to an emergency scene 10 times quicker than an ambulance and has a portable defibrillator on board.

It is all still at the drawing board stage yet, but it sounds quite likely a manufacturer will take this up.

Below is a promotional video of the drone in action. Very cool.
