Argodesigns flying ambulances, Image of the day #13

This image did it for me today. A giant drone serving as an emergency ambulance after a car crash. For real? Not yet. For the moment it’s just in the heads of design team Argodesign who were asked for Body Week by Co about what was thé one thing in the health care industry desperately needed to be redesigned and how? Well, they had a wild conceptual solution. Their insight was this: In emergencies, every second counts. An estimated 1000 saveable lives are lost per year in the UK because of slow emergency response in traffic-jammed urban environment. How can a four-wheeled ambulance be expected to make it anywhere and back quickly?

The Squid Stories image of the day #6

When I read this article on the future oriented technology blog ‚Serious Wonders’, this image brought me back in time, weird enough. You have to know that my dad was an orthopedic technician, and we were brought up with all kind of prosthetics that he made for his patients. I remember him explaining us how he hoped in the far future to be able to have the technology to make real robotic prosthetics, to be controlled by the mind, like a real arm or leg does. We were impressed by only the thought of it but could not imagine that this would be possible ever.
