Your Next Defibrilator Could be Delivered by This Heart-Attack Saving Drone

German non-profit, Definetz, is hoping its drones can save more lives by delivering defibrillators to heart attack victims. At 70 kilometers per hours, the nonprofit thinks its octocopters can bring the life-saving device to patients faster than an ambulance.

Developed by Height Tech, the drone is It’s suited for travel in remote locals and can be deployed via an app on a smartphone. Upon arrival the payload is dropped via parachutes. However, the drones do not come with a medical professional to use the defibrillator. It’s not clear whether the app would be able to sense whether you were suffering from a heart attack, though there are medical devices that could detect such health failures.

German intelligence warned that the invention has potential for good, but it will take time to see if the drones can actually be helpful.
