Zipline: The Amazingly Clever Autonomous Delivery Drone System That Saves Lives

Zipline is an autonomous delivery drone company that not only can silently deliver goods to you, but some of its drones deliver life-saving medications and blood products to remote hospitals around the world.

The whole thing works in pretty much any weather because there’s no human steering it. It has no issues flying at night so they run the operation 24 hours a day, which is how in six years they’ve managed to make those half a million often life-saving deliveries.
