Coolest drone I ever seen. I hope we will see these at Walmart one day.
Cool to see you talking about Zipline. We made a video about them years ago when they just had 1 depot in Rwanda. I knew they would be the future. Incredible company
Yeah. I think they are going to be very big
I want to work for Zipline. Ever since I heard about them nearly 5 years ago
those moments with Abdul were also so wholesome, zipline seems like such a fun company
What is WRONG with our media? Why doesn't EVERYONE know about Zipline and their awesome (both from a technical and a humanitarian point of view) system, ?
I haven't seen squat about them in Mechanical Engineering, Technology Review, or Discover magazines, much less mainstream media. They definitely deserve more coverage.
Thanks so much for your coverage, as well as all your crazy/silly/fun projects.
Continue to keep us smiling, Mark
In America pharmacy id not about saving lives, its just another business.
are you okay? its just a dang business
You just haven't been paying attention
u need to realise that these delivery jobs make up so many jobs
cheers, dr leon
You made me cry with joy again, Mark Rober. I too, am an engineer, and have a medical background from my military service. Thanks for exposing me to what ZipLine is doing, their work in Rawanda is AmAzInG, and the capabilities of their designs are creative/important beyond measure. I appreciate your work immesly, and it inspires me as an engineer to do cool things...and thanks for being such a fantastic storyteller.
Wish some one would 😢 Cry for me
@Jay Kingsly I will. 😢
@Jay Kingslyaww 🥰
@Jay Kingsly lemme get the onions
Kate why do you have to be to dramatic?
Mark, your enthusiasm is truly admirable, and it's remarkable how these guys were able to overcome their challenges and achieve something phenomenal.
How can you not love this guy, so inspiring and encouraging while also getting very beneficial things done
Thank you Mark for this opportunity of zooming in on some incredible engineering I would never have known otherwise. You're doing a great service in sowing inspiration and passion.
What a phenomenal company, and as always, amazing story. Thanks Mark!
m Verified person⁉️
This is great imagine how easier and smarter these can be.
@zeestar Verified person⁉️
Thank you Mark for spending a video on a cool initiative like Zipline. It is so touching to see a different side of the world, full of talented people ACTUALLY trying to make difference. It brought me tears of joy and thankfulness watching this, knowing the difference that is being made in a country like Rwanda that I know via Compassion International.
I know it's kind of nerdy, but this piece goes beyond the nerdy factor and brings me much joy on so many levels. Especially knowing it takes place in Rwanda, close to Kenya, where refugees could really use something like this to get the things they need to survive. Thank you Mark!
What is kind of nerdy? Drones?
You are such an inspiration to me, Mark! Thank you for always sharing super valuable content as always!
Truly inspiring, uplifting and innovative.
Great to see technology being deployed to help save lives, improve the environment through fuel savings and inspiring the next generation to help make the world a better place.
Thanks for sharing Mark.
This is honestly the best part of Marks channel because he promotes smaller companies spread so we can have a better cleaner future
As a Rwandan, I am thrilled to see the progress my country is making through technology, and the impact that innovative companies like Zipline are having in developing countries. The revolutionary work of Zipline in providing medical supplies via drone technology is changing lives and improving access to healthcare in rural areas. I am grateful to see this highlighted in a video by Mark Rober, and I appreciate the attention it brings to the positive advancements happening in Rwanda.
I live in Germany and I feel technologically inferior to Rwanda. Germany will never allow drone delivery because of safety concerns.
Bro them timed stoplights tho
@Wayne Bimmel They will. They just won't be a first adopter. Physical technologies take time to knock out all the issues and reduce risks. We have become to enamored with the rate of change of software and computer processors. This is just not possible in the normal iterative environment of physical components. Give it time, you will see. It won't be next year though.
As a Rwandan, I am also happy
Intelligence and innovation have no borders. I'm happy for your country.
Mark, this is one of my favorite videos from you. So inspiring and so connecting! Thanks for showing what people are doing to create a positive impact :o mind blown big time!
Mark, this is a fascinating company. Thank you for sharing!
I’m a relatively new engineer looking to work for a company with similar goals as Zipline. Specifically, an innovative company that is focused on finding solutions to real world problems (such as making medical deliveries to isolated communities). Do you know of any other companies similar to Zipline in this regard?
This is absolutely amazing! I love watching this type of clip! Great coverage, Mark!
Zipline is soo underrated they need more attention. that should be provided all over the world !! thanks mark for talking about them :)
What an incredible story! I had no idea this even existed! Imagine the possibilities going forward!
Mark's new videos always bring interesting scientific and technical information
This video will be #1 on Trending. I’m predicting the future.
It's engineering, not science.
I met these folks at Maker's Faire SFO in 2019 before the short range drones were a thing. They were happy to explain all of this stuff to a random college kid and his little brother, and I'm thankful for that!
It's fascinating to see you mention Zipline. We actually created a video featuring them years ago when they were just starting out in Rwanda. I had a hunch they would revolutionize the industry. They truly are an incredible company pushing boundaries. 🚁🌍🚀 Can't help but wonder what other groundbreaking innovations they have in store for the future.
This is super cool! I have never heard of this before.
Maybe these will get a big thing in the future. These drones seem like a pretty important step from delivery cars for food and medical-deliveries.
As a robotics engineer myself.. I appreciate how amazing this is. Just wow
This is absolutely incredible. Way to go Zipline! I have a question - has the company thought about revising the fulfilment process such that the planes are already assembled with batters? This may reduce time in setting up the wings and batteries each time. This may require the space to be reconfigured of course. This way the batteries only have to be replaced once they're closer to being depleted.
Mad respect for Abdul. Was feeling down about my own life but homie suffered far worse and turned out a kind and helpful person. Aspiration and respect for not being destroyed and being so contributing and willing to continue
He is a true inspiration to all humankind --- the power of innovative engineering to change lives!
@Kerzy Tibok what exactly innovative he has engineered?
Your own life is just as important, no matter how much more someone else suffers and endures. Take care of yourself, king. Things won't just be automatically better just because someone else survived worse. You can do this.
@figofagonagoitis I’m sorry but did you watch the video? 😂
I've only come across your video by accident but why don't i already know about Zipline? the way it's using long distance drones to deliver medical supplies in Rwanda is an amazing testament to what people can achieve. Drones are clearly the future in delivery services, but what's going on in Rwanda is nothing short of genius. Just think how many remote communities there are and what a lifeline Zipline can be.
Thank you for making this video. In my country, its hard to get students to naturally think they need to help the community because all seems peaceful and alright. Looking at young generations in Rwanda get excited on tech that can help the community made me even more motivated to inspire my students to have that energy as well
I have been completely amazed by this video and all the info you're sharing! This is going to change the planet within my generations lifetime and I can't wait to see it/participate.
I just love what you stand for. Thank you for being YOU. I'm a STEM teacher who sees about 600-700 students a week; it's amazing to see that flicker of inspiration turn into a flame of curiosity. Keep doing what you're doing! We love you!
Abdul's story is so inspiring, thank you so much for sharing his experiences and the impact Zipline is making.
The “1 video per year dedicated to how engineers make the world a better place” are usually my favorite video of the year.
Yeah I honestly wish it was a monthly series haha
This video is a bitter sweet since the technology both helps society and extinguishes a major job description - food and small package delivery driver.
@Mr.Electric well someone has to put the packages in the drone and there will be a lot of drones that need to be launched simultaneously
Competing for glitterbomb tbh
@Mr.Electric So like a horse and buggy driver, a century later.
This is one of the best videos that I've seen on Clip-Share for a long while! Hats off to Mark for making this video, but especially to those clever people in Rwanda who dreamed big and made Zipline happen.
This is absolutely incredible 😃 I'm so impressed with what they've accomplished 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
Such an inspiring story and so much hard work to put all of this into perspective! Loved this episode.
I was looking for motivation to finish my engineering degree.. honestly, companies like zipline and Abdul just remind me what the true purpose of being an engineer is.
WOW! So impressive what Zipline has developed! Great video and very inspiring
I find it so fascinating how Zipline probably wasn’t known about by a lot of us, but now that Mark basically exposed them to millions of people, they have more of a chance to make a difference worldwide! I hope they succeed and make the world a better place for everyone who struggles with problems like the ones that their solving now.
They were already valued at 1.3 billion dollars in 2019. Not a small startup anymore. But exposure from Mark will surely still help.
I had no idea of Zipline before watching this.
@Thorwald Johanson they probably hold most of that value in the fact that they are building for the future, it may not be worth that at this very moment, but based on projections and the fact that they've got VERY strong proof of their concept means that their valuation is sky rocketed (pun not intended)
True, never heard oh them before.
"real engineering" made a video about them a few years ago, it's a more traditional engineering channel that has taught me a lot.
Makes you feel alive, makes you feel human.
Makes you more hopeful about the future. Thanks Mark!
Mark, I am a cynic about humanity, tending to focus on all of the negative aspects of our civilization. Your videos always inspire hope in me that we are not going to look out our shattered windows at an apocalyptic landscape. Thanks for all you do.
What an absolutely incredible use of technology!
Hey Mark, I saw the video two months ago, and I think it's awesome that innovation has yet reached a limit, especially when it helps people get their medical needs in remote areas.
Quick question, though, do you like your basketball baked, boiled, steamed, grilled, fried, or raw?
This is the best single Clip-Share video I’ve ever seen in my life. Prompt to Mark and all the amazing people working at Zipline 🙌🏽
As an Australian, I can’t believe this hasn’t been adopted to aid the rural communities in the Northern Territory and Western Australia. Hopefully someone important sees this and can help save the lives of those living rurally. Absolutely heart warming video
it's not cost effective for anything other than the purpose portrayed here. there's a premium to life saving equipment and medicine that the government is willing to sponsor. everyday consumer items? not so much. door dash? even less of a priority
@cagney billingsley its still cheaper, faster, and better for the enviroment
Western Australia area = 2.646 million km² , Rwanda area = 26,798 km² . With WA being nearly 100 times the size of Rwanda, coverage is the challenge. But with better battery tech, I think we'll see this in very remote areas in the future.
For further reference the Tokyo metropolitan area alone is about half the size of Rwanda.
Australia is a big country
Truly inspiring. Thank you for shining a huge spotlight on Zipline and Abdul’s story. A positive story in a truly messed up world
Incredibly amazing use of drone technology. My mind is delightfully blown. Please keep it going! ❤
That’s incredible! I want to work there!
GOOSEBUMPS all over my body!
This medical delivery drones are the best invention i saw for a while. Thank you Zipline for inventing this insane system! You are really making the world a better place ❤
Mark - I've loved all your videos, but this one took it to the next level. Breathtaking, brilliant and filled with hope. Made my day - Thanks!

I honestly couldn’t help but tear up a little watching this video. Abdul’s story, Rwanda’s story, the technological utilization for life-saving measures, and the overall attitude of both the people and their community. This is an amazing video and should be shared all over the world! Thank you for bringing attention to their amazing endeavors, Mark ❤️
Same. I'm so inspired
Glad I wasn't the only one. The inspiration he gives to those kids is awesome.
@Draken0023 You put my exact thoughts into words much better than I could have.
i cant agree anymore
What a wonderful solution! They all deserve to do well! I love it!
Great way to bring antivenom to a patient before more serious damage is done or even death. Great to see this idea. I always thought of it but glad to see it being put into practice
Incredible story of this inventor. The inventiveness of the drones used for positive medical delivery!
Really cool drone. Would have loved to have one of those lol.
One of your best videos yet! It's great to see this amazing technology up close and in the hands of a company with an admirable focus. Also looks like you had a great time in Rwanda!
Abdul seems like such an amazing and kind hearted human. The fact he turned the absolutely awful situation he and his family had to deal with into doing whatever he can to help people is so inspiring ❤
Well, technically speaking, his family did not have to deal with it. At least not for too long.
@Jan Bernad I feel the same way about your callous statement.
Abdul come closer, back off abdul
Hi Mark, I'm a kid who loves your videos due to the hard work and time you put into your videos. You inspire me every video to be creative for what I have and that it always takes time to do hard and amazing things. I hope to be a Nasa engineer one day. Thank you.
If they gave Oscars or Emmy’s to short format Clip-Share videos (do they?), this video would dominate. Wow! Positive, inspiring, encouraging, challenging, informative…the very definition of mind-blowing. Well, well done, sir!!
the fact that this isnt being more heavily invested in is quite saddening since i love this idea and everything about it, its amazing
I’m glad we have people building this stuff that helps us save lives
Thank you for this. With all the craziness going on, seeing this awesome technology, heart warming story of success and strength, gives me some hope in the world and fuels the drive to keep learning and creating.
How hasn't this company been more publicized? They are so far and beyond Amazon's efforts. I finally see a realistic, practical, sustainable use for drone delivery technology!
I don’t think the issue is publicity. Amazon just has the power to scale faster. I am sure zipline is well on their way, but my best guess is just raw investing capital
Because Zipline likely hasn't spent as much money as Amazon on marketing the project.
Because Amazon doesn't just do drones, maybe?
How long until Amazon acquires them? :(
It’s amazing how technology can transform a country ❤ Love this video
I absolutely love this idea!
every time i see one of your videos, i only hope the world is gonna be a peaceful place to live. Great video Mark :)
Thanks Mark for making me aware of such a wonderful company
Awesome video Mark! Thanks for sharing this amazing invention!

The "1 video per year dedicated to how engineers make the world a better place" are usually also my favourite video of the year
Mark does a great job with the "quality over quantity" mindset
If It was possible, I wish we could have 2 videos per year.
Like... One every 6/7 months 😆
But It would probably be really difficult to have even one more video fit in to the year schedule
@Mih Soares🎃🍙 He does liek 10 videos a year, just most of them are just ridiculous stuff.
Wow. I really am amazed by this tech. Among other things as a pilot I am wondering if those props could be scaled up for say GA aircraft and make them a lot quieter. As a rural and remote emergency physician in Canada’s North the applications seem endless. 21:32
Totally amazing it seems like they've worked out every quark and what's really cool is how everybody in that country is happy
No doubt this dude will find his way to space within the decade. I believe
Wow. And still a private company too.. This was an awesome video and the engineering is a huge leap forward for this technology. I have a feeling as this video and others start to get out there, this company truly will see their hard work change and revolutionize the world.
Mark, your programs are excellent.
*I like how you present the invention with an impressive storyline, also I am mesmerised by the little inventions that shape the journey of the inventor later on in life!*
*WHAT? I CAN’T HEAR YOU. TRY YELLING LOUDER*
@H haha *nice one!*
My mind just got blown away by this zipline drone deliver system ❣
Zipline is doing such a futurist job.
Thanks for such presentation 🎉
This is probably one of the most inspiring stories I’ve seen on here, outstanding!
This is sooo cool!! Really looking forward to the future. But I do wonder how these ever so silent drones avert bird collisions or don't disturb migrating flocks 🤔
Been a long time since I have been genuinely amazed by new technology, this one did it for me.
As much as I love watch Mark Rober videos.....that dude who lost both his parents and all of his siblings as a child and still turned out to be a successful person, is like a hero to me. I wish I was a strong as he is. I can't imagine losing everything and everyone and still coming out ahead. Props to him. He is the definition of what a true success story looks like.
And the bit about his scar on his head from the same machete, thats some avenger lore type ish.
@Lucas Theil No, I'm Batman...
your opening sentence is invalid and not needed.
@R H thats just how he felt, probably meant that his hero was Mark Rober untill now
Loved this one.
Well done, Sir!
I really want to be an enginer because of how cool it is . That was actually kinda cool .
what a beautiful video Mark..., I was amazed... I love when technological information and social engagement are combined. congratulations also to the sympathy with which you make your videos. thank you (on behalf of humanity we mean...)
What an inspiration to see what a can do attitude will do.Thanks for sharing Mark.
Wow! definitely one of the most inspiring things i've ever seen. Makes life easier.
An 88% mortality rate reduction is actually insane. Thank you so much for sharing about this company to all of us, and I really hope they spread across the world because just imagine, 88% of deaths in hospita could be prevented with this (although I guess it’s gonna be more impactful in somewhere like Rwanda, but still, it’s crazy
That was an overarching percentage number. Realistically how many supplies are needed on-sight for birthing? Some yes but not enough to improve that 88% statistic. I think that is an overall healthcare reform and the drones are an added benefit that helps.
@writerconsidered honestly Rwanda looked like a European country 😐
Is it how it really is ? They seem like they've progressed a lot
maternal mortality rate not mortality rate overall
@aaa aaa Well its on a bell curve, so 30 yrs ago they started out with nothing. So once they were committed to improving things the upward rise is going to be sharp.
Plus You aren't seeing the whole picture here. This was a rose colored picture, obviously major improvements, it just isn't uniform yet.
@aaa aaa they have a long way to go to reach European standards, not least in democratic reforms. But they are far, far ahead of many of their neighbors.
very impressive company
I look forward to their many awards
Amazing, learned so much. Truly inspiring!
Mark, I watch a decent amount of Clip-Share content. Unlike most I watch your videos like these always inspire me. Thank you.
Bro this was probably your best video.
Beesechurger what are you doing here
It isn't often that tech innovation brings a tear. This is one of those times it truly did. Thanks Mark for sharing this with the world. Massive kudos to the Zipline team.
Hello bhai sahab kaise ho
While I enjoy all of your videos, this may be my favorite, and where I think you’re at your best. Inspiring all of us to dream big and solve real problems for the benefit of humanity.
Wow, this is fascinating and entertaining! I love new tech and this really excites me! Thank you so much for educating me and yes, my mind is blown!
I am speechless. This is the single greatest video I have seen on Clip-Share. What amazed me is that the primary purpose is humanitarian and not Amazon. I have 40 years as an Engineer and 10 years teaching Engineering. I have designed and seen amazing designs. This tops everything. It would be worth the trip to Rwanda just to shake his hand.
I immediatly went to see hwo to invest in this and was amazed to find how long ago this company was founded. Hopefully they do a public ipo at some point. What an amazing fiscal and humanitarian potential
Another awesome and inspiring story. Thank Mark!
The kid showing Abdul his model drone was one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen. Imagine seeing someone be inspired like that by something you built
I don't get it Zipline is a pure American company founded by someone else, Abdul didn't invent or build those drones what am i missing? Zipline is an American company that designs, manufactures, and operates delivery drones. The company operates distribution centers in Rwanda, Ghana, Japan, the United States, and Nigeria, with signed agreements to begin service in Cote d'Ivoire and Kenya.
@Holio I'm curious about this as that is very different from the story presented in the video and what Rwandan people say in the comments. Where did you find this information?
@Holioi believe it’s because ziplines biggest market is rwanda its where they first started to do the drones the US actually came waaay later rwanda played a big part in how they service rural areas you know how they plan it and stuff rwandan division of their company also likely made massive contributions to the company to drone development their plans ect to give a example how important zipline is to rwanda and how important rwanda is to zipline outside of kegali 75% of blood deliveries are made by zipline
@Holio He says in the video that Abdul was the very first zipline employee in Rwanda.
This is why I enjoy your content its not all about trends its about truly remarkable innovative minds in other countries and how its helping us move into the future
Great review on the drone's technology and capabilities! Nice seeing it helping Rwandans. Mind blowing benefits to humanity and the planet coming soon. Bring it on...🎯😀
Cool problem-solving engineering is awesome enjoyed this.
