João-de-barro / Sower drone for public spaces


João de Barro aims to change a deforestation situation in Brazil by dispersing seeds in the air like birds do. In order to make possible a revitalization and preservation of the Amazon forest, the technology used in the drones is highly important. I believe that with this service in a near future the South America fauna and flora will be stronger and safer.
