      Not to be "that" person, but how many HUMAN jobs is lost or provided with this ? Because I know big companies love not having to employ or pay people "cutting down costs"/"the false unicorn of eternal profit". And what are the possible MISSUSES of this technology ? Can they be intercepted by a third party, for instance ?

    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.

      Why doesn’t the hospital keep blood in it’s own premises? If the zip line stores it it seems like the hospital could store it. I understand if it’s a remote village but not a hospital.

And while I am still very daunted by the idea of committing so much time and resources on those four years, projects and companies like Zipline and their mission in Rwanda remind me of why I wanted to study engineering in the first place. Thank you for sharing and telling Zipline's story.

    8lb (3629g) is probably pretty useful. I mean it would maybe limit how much you could get in 1 hit although the size restrictions actually look more constraining. Of all the deliveries I've had recently only 1 would be too heavy but several of them would be too big. If they can make it take more volume then this might be viable for less urgent delivery like from Amazon.

    How hasn't this company been more publicized? They are so far and beyond Amazon's efforts. I finally see a realistic, practical, sustainable use for drone delivery technology!

      @Humza Khan, Moving the drone back and forth 25 times probably moves less mass than moving the van back and forth 1 time.

    there's one huge issue that will be very interesting to see how they overcome it: A UPS or Fed Ex truck has dozens up to hundreds of packages every day. It leaves point A with all of them, delivers all of them, then returns back to point A after a whole day going to points B-Z. This idea would need drones to deliver to point B, go back to A, then to C, then back to A, then to D and so on. The efficiency rate compared to a truck is probably around 2% at best. Amazon can't keep up with orders as it is now with thousands of trucks. Imagine 1 package per drone flight.

      If It was possible, I wish we could have 2 videos per year.
      Like... One every 6/7 months 😆
      But It would probably be really difficult to have even one more video fit in to the year schedule 🥹

    I love how our world is learning these new technologies and techniques that would eventually help the world once our time is up. For example, Zipline would be one of those products. A question had popped into my head while watching the video and makes me wonder, if a person lives in a house that has a roof over the porch or someone that lives in an apartment, how would the package be able to get their door step?

    Mark, this video should win some sort of award. It touches on so many positive things. First, it was produced so well. It was engaging and inspirational. It highlighted brilliant engineering and described the process from concept to prototype to solution. It was entertaining. It makes me want to visit Rwanda, It demonstrated the resilience of a country besieged by terrible civil war. I could go on and on. This video gives me hope for mankind and was a breath of fresh air. It was an escape from all the political nonsense going on and negativity we are exposed to 24/7. Thank you again for this video.

      couldn't have said it better myself. watching this video makes me wish i was a part of it all, so much better than what i see on a daily basis, for once i wasnt thinking about working some miserable 8 hour job for the rest of my life while everything around me is complete depression. instead i saw something and somewhere full of positivity and inspiration, full of life and nice people who arent the idiotic people im surrounded with, all trying to make a difference and improve. imagining that being my life seems like a fairy tale
