Rainiern is vegan and loves animals, especially snails, as he knows that snails always persevere in whatever they do. He hopes to be like them. He also enjoys building things such as LEGO, as building these toys involves coordination between the hand and the mind. He one day hopes to be a digital zoologist that uses technology to save animals because he observes that more and more animals are being abused and killed nowadays.

I was reading about drones and thought about making one to deliver medical supplies to isolated sites and disaster-struck areas quickly and with minimal effort. A key feature of my drone is that it will be amphibious - it can both fly and sail on water and will also have a communication device.
I would like to make a drone that delivers food and medical supplies in Singapore. To protect the environment, we can use drones, which are eco-friendly. Using drones will also reduce road traffic, enabling emergency vehicles to get through the roads and reach their destination more efficiently. Lastly, using drones to deliver will provide more efficient delivery as drones will be able to take shortcuts through the sky to reach their destination.
I would like to make a drone that is equipped with a grabber, a camera, and a siren to save animals. The siren is used to alert people if animals are being abused. The grabber is used mainly to pick up snails on the pavement to avoid being stepped on. The camera takes note of who abuses animals and sends the pictures to PETA (an animal rights NGO). In the centre of the drone is a small cage for putting in the injured and abused animals using the grabber.
