The use of the once military drones has been turned into a tool to aid those in need within Africa’s remote regions.  The idea is that the drones would be launched from clinics carrying blood samples which in turn could be used to aid with serum for snake bites or medicine.  The drones would be launched from clinics and pilot themselves along a pre-programmed route to the nearest lab, using GPS and microelectronic gyroscopes to guide them.  They in turn could return what the clinics need and deliver it to them when they are hours away via land travel.  Great idea and as long as the cost is minimal this could be used in great numbers to benefit a lot of needy people.
