The next time you're stuck in the mountains, having this air drone on hand can save your life.

During an avalanche, the activated drone will leave its charging station -- which happens to be solar powered. Then, it will scan the affected area and tag the premise with bright paint. Similarly, if the drone finds a victim of the avalanche it assigns a color marking; this will save the search and rescue team a lot of time and trouble, and they will be able to save victims without any further delays.

The drone has a GPS for navigation system as well as cross-linked sensors that can locate the exact positions of the avalanche. Plus, once the drone is activated, it sends an alert to the mountain rescue service.

If you want to enjoy the great outdoors, but are worried about unsuspecting avalanches, this air drone will ensure you arrive home safely. Stats for Life-Saving Air Drones Trending: Older & Popular
