Drone Delivery that helps connect the world with Matter

Over one Billion people in the world live in a place where they are not physically connected to the outside world. Most of these individuals live in poverty and desperately need access to basic medical supplies, but are unable to get them. Andreas Raptopoulos has found an ecologically friendly and fast way to begin to connect the world while building a relatively cheap infrastructure. How could this be possible? Through drone delivery. It seems like science fiction until you see Andreas explain it:



Delivery drones not only have the potential to revolutionize the way we distribute medical supplies but could also change our delivery systems in modern day cities. With approximately 3.5 billion people living in cities the world is in desperate need of modernizing its delivery systems. Andreas has a vision of a drone delivery infrastructure that could help reduce congestion in an ecologically friendly fashion.
