The Everfly APSARA drone is an origami-like disposable drone made to deliver essential supplies in a humanitarian or disaster situation.

It builds on an earlier DARPA project called Vanishing Programmable Resources (VAPR), intended to create self-destructing electronic devices able to stop high-tech military equipment falling into enemy hands.

Flying robots can be ideal for bringing small, high value, time-sensitive goods to people in low-infrastructure areas.

Apsara is a glider as a result, with a cardboard frame that spans three feet at its widest point, and is constructed using a folding process that also employs tape to make sure things stay where they should.
