This Camel Ambulance is More Effective in the Desert

Frederic Schwab, a design student, has conceptualized a camel ambulance -- a means of transportation that is effective in the desert.

If you lived out in the sand dunes, you know that any car or ambulance would have a hard time getting out to help you in case of emergency. Helicopters are expensive, so they may not come every time, which is why there is a need for an animal-powered transportation device. Camels are made for the desert and are used to carrying heavy loads so toting a cart along to seat a doctor or patient should be no problem.

Be it practical or not, this Star Wars-esque design makes sense. If anything, imagine how cool it would be to pull up to the hospital via camel! Stats for Camel-Drawn Medical Carriages Trending: Older & Chilly
