Stephanie Anderson was awarded the Nobel Peace prize in 2040 for her invention of the Hover-Line. The Hover-Line is a small, mechanized, solar powered personal transportation device utilizing drone technology in the fashion of a zip-line. The device earned recognition in Times Square on New Year’s Eve 2039 when a casualty occurred requiring a rapid response from medical personnel. The crowds were too dense for access, so the emergency response team used a Hover-Line to soar over the crowds to the scene of the accident. At $9,000 it is a device rarely seen in the hands of recreational users, but emergency response squads everywhere are now including it in their standard set of supplies. The device is now credited with saving over 2,400 lives in both remote and urban areas around the globe. Most notably, it was used to rescue a pair of inexperienced rock climbers on the face of El Capitan in Yosemite, CA, who dropped their last carabineer and were stranded at 7,000 feet. The Hover-Line is now retrofitted with an adjustable, detachable seat and International Transportation Standards Association approved safety straps, as well as a basket attachment necessary for carrying a small emergency response kit.
