Tesla has just released a video of its Engineering division testing out its newly-developed ventilator prototype. Mostly made from car parts from the Tesla Model 3, in order to save components for the medical industry, the working prototype starts with hospital-grade oxygen getting pumped into a Tesla mixing chamber where it passes through a wall body and a set of Model 3 sensors.

The video then takes viewers to the packaged version where the entire systems is controlled via the Tesla 3’s infotainment touchscreen and regulated with the Model 3’s computer. The packaged version also contains a backup systems with a car battery, oxygen tank and air compressor — allowing for the patient to be moved unplugged for up to 40 minutes. The video ends with the team saying that there is still lots of work to be done in perfecting the life-saving machine. Watch the entire clip above to see how the electric car manufacturer is putting its tech to use during the Coronavirus pandemic.
