Has nothing to do with the video but you’d think with his specialty in engineering and robotics, he would at least be in a bot fight once. Why hasn’t he done bot fights?
why don’t hospital keep blood by themselves? huh
It almost looks like a submarine
dudeee you’re the willy wonka of the engineers
So do they have to worry about pepper trying to rob them for the blood??
As a Rwandan, I am thrilled to see the progress my country is making through technology, and the impact that innovative companies like Zipline are having in developing countries. The revolutionary work of Zipline in providing medical supplies via drone technology is changing lives and improving access to healthcare in rural areas. I am grateful to see this highlighted in a video by Mark Rober, and I appreciate the attention it brings to the positive advancements happening in Rwanda.
The place is beautiful
Does it have a transponder for TCAS systems? 😬
Bro happy to see your country’s growth and and i am glad to know about the things Rwanda is doing to save gorillas
your country looks like a wonderful place. it makes me want to go be a part of it.
As much as I love watch Mark Rober videos…..that dude who lost both his parents and all of his siblings as a child and still turned out to be a successful person, is like a hero to me. I wish I was a strong as he is. I can’t imagine losing everything and everyone and still coming out ahead. Props to him. He is the definition of what a true success story looks like.
This world needs more people like Abdul – people who are using their talents to help their communities and solving the world’s problems! Wishing you all the success in the world!
Mark, as an engineer for the last 50 years I have to say you’re amazing and so is Zipline! Well done!
Anyone else feel thankful and sad at the same time watching this. Happy for mark to be shining a light on amazing things that are happening around the world and one another truly helping each other . Sad because we can’t get such an amazing story covered in the news uniting the world and showing us there is an “us” and we can all work together to do amazing things… just a thought
Thank you Mark for your dedication to learning, teaching, and sharing your passion in engineering. It is always a pleasure to see your videos. You have set some very high marks for yourself and that inspires other to do likewise. All the best to you, Ken 🙂
Cool to see you talking about Zipline. We made a video about them years ago when they just had 1 depot in Rwanda. I knew they would be the future. Incredible company
@Marth I could be wrong but it doesn’t seem like a gimmick, at least not for the reasons you used. Sure it’s impractical to use this for large scale orders, but that’s now how it’s being marketed or used. This is no more impractical than getting a door dash or Uber eats delivery which instead of having a small drone deliver a meal or item has an entire vehicle driving a few miles just for one or two things. This isn’t meant to fill the same niche as Amazon deliveries but instead for when someone forgets to pick up a small thing at the grocery store or needs a meal
@manofsan it looks like they are delivering to private addresses, and to back-yards, not front yards, which A: limits the number of people who could access the drone as it delivers to just the residents of the house, and B: allows Zipline to blacklist certain recipients if foul play occurs, and potially allow them to chase down fees for damaged drones. Secondly, the zipline seems to only be deployed for long enough to put down the parcel. That’s not actually very much time to interfere with the delivery.
Even so, it would be impossible to completely eliminate the possibility. But the drones should be able to make an emergency landing if they detect the cable is stuck, or in the worst case, they still have a parachute on each drone.
Yes, seen that video years ago and was incredibly blown out with your story then!
@Marth a LOT of packages are delivered one or two at a time every day, specially things like food or medicine where they can’t wait to make multiple deliveries (here we use motorbikes and bicycles to make small deliveries, they became even more common with the popularization of food delivery apps and the pandemic). Zipline supplies this niche. the bulk of the supplies of an hospital can come from trucks, but if they need one thing, a medicine that has low supply, a blood type that they ran out, they don’t need to make an order and wait for a truck to deliver it, they can have a drone deliver only what they need.
@Kurt DuPree – it could be some passer-by, or someone who isn’t the account-holder. Haven’t we all seen videos of dropped off packages being swiped by others? My point is that this dangling line creates an acute vulnerability.
As a Rwandan who was just working on a project of optimizing drone delivery routes a few weeks ago, it’s shocking how much this video spoke to me. Your videos are so uplifting and inspirational, it’s inebriating! I’m gonna ride this high for a week!
This was incredibly inspiring. Very rare to see a tech video with such a huge positive impact that also renews my hope in humanity.
Thanks for reaching out I would share out beneficial knowledge ☝️☝️.
