Drones On Maui,
You may have seen them down at the Lahaina Harbor annoying the surfers and paddle boarders by videoing them in action. The general feeling is that they are annoying and bothersome to those that may be the target of their affections. Drones are also getting popular with real estate agents who want to show a birds eye view of a property they want to sell. Annoying the neighbors in the process.
While these usages of drones may be a little mundane and not very useful (except to the realtor perhaps.) There may be some use for these mosquito sized helicopters.
What if you could turn these drones into a flying doctors bag? Hmmm. Think about that for a second. What if someone was on a boat trip and was having a heart attack? How long would it take to get help? With these ambulance drones which fly at 100 kl/hr it would take only minutes to get out there.
How long does it take to get an ambulance out to the Pali after an accident with all of that traffic and only a two lane road. With one of these drones, it would only be a matter of minutes for it to get there. With it’s onboard camera and audio systems a trained medical professional can talk you thru a life saving procedure such as defibrillating a heart that is in cardiac arrest.
The possibilities are endless. Cool factor 10 – Annoying factor 0.
