Design Concept: A Modern Camel-Drawn Ambulance

Even a four-wheel drive truck isn't going to make it over high, shifting sand dunes. That's why design student Frederic Schwab thinks that an ambulance for the roughest desert terrain should be pulled by a camel. He envisions that a doctor would sit in the shaded cockpit and navigate by GPS. Compartments behind the cockpit, as well as additional cases strapped to the camel, would contain medical supplies.

It's even more worse than I thought. Here's a picture of a camel pulling a carriage: and another at . Notice how the load is placed on a back of the camel? This ambulance picture assumes that a camel is like a horse, where the collar is put forward, on the shoulders, to pull a load. Also, see how low the carriages are relative to the camel? This ambulance mockup picture has a horrible sense of perspective. Or it would put the patient at 5 feet above the ground. How is a patient supposed to climb into it, and if the patient is invalid, how many people does it take to life the person there?

When I went to college 9 years ago, one of my teachers said something about an ambulance on a camel. I thought it was a joke, but I guess he was right.

That's cute, but given the person in Arabic attire and the high likelihood that it's mean for a Muslim country, there should be Red Crescent either in place of or in addition to the Red Cross.
