Can You Lift A 40-Ton Truck With 2000 Drones?
Swedish truck manufacturer Scania: 'We’ve all got big ideas about the future. Not all of them are going to fly.'
The video is a cool CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) advert made by Scania, Swedish manufacturer and a supplier of
sustainable transport solutions and services.
The one-minute CGI video clip shows how 2,000 drones pick up a 40-ton truck.
Technically this is actually possible.
The DJI Storm drone (price: $29,400) has a maximum payload of 18.5 kg.
Multiplied by 2000, they could lift 37,000 kg.
(A typical 18-wheeler truck weighs about 36,000 kg.)
Price tag for these 2000 drones: $59,000,000.
