First ever drone-delivered kidney is no worse for wear

First ever drone-delivered kidney is no worse for wear Drone delivery really only seems practical for two things: take-out and organ transplants. Both are relatively light and also extremely time sensitive. Well, experiments in flying a kidney around Baltimore in a refrigerated box have yielded positive results — which also seems promising for getting your […]
