Drones might have come into negative light recently, including an instant where it reportedly came close to crashing into an aircraft – which could end up in disastrous results, not that the world needs another aviation disaster to round off the coming to the end of 2014. However, there are positives to be drawn from the use of drones for sure, where a Dutch-based student has recently unveiled a prototype of what is known as an “ambulance drone”. This particular drone happens to be a flying defibrillator which is capable of reaching heart attack victims within minutes – as there is no need to weave through rush hour traffic, buying perhaps some precious life-saving minutes in the process.
I suppose it is just a matter of time before someone would come up with the idea of actually riding the wearable technology wave, and to work on a battery that will be able to recharge itself – through the use of kinetic energy, of course. Hence, here we are with what they call “Ampy”, where Ampy happens to be a spare battery pack that will certainly come in handy during times of trouble. It is currently a Kickstarter project, so if you would like to see it in the flesh, perhaps it would be best to rope in the rest of your circle of influence as well as family members to contribute their fair share of investment, too.
