Inventor of Facebook’s Aquila drone, Nigel Gifford, will be showcasing his brand new ground-breaking invention: the edible Pouncer drone at this year’s Commercial UAV Show. This humanitarian UAV is designed to deliver food aid in disaster zones by being edible itself.
With a 50kg payload that can feed up to 100 people a day, a pre-formed shell that can be reused to provide shelter, it’s frame that can be burnt safely in order to cook food, this drone is a true inspiration in UAV mechanics.
Nigel hopes this invention will truly push the boundaries of air aid delivery and save countless lives.
