The Lifeguard Drone

December 29, 2014 in Daily Bulletin

We’ve previously covered the ambulance drone. Greg Kumparak wrote about its younger brother, the lifeguard drone:

  • Project Ryptide is a self-inflating life preserver ring.
  • It can attach to most common drones. A lifeguard can then control it using their phone and have it drop the life preserver next to a drowning person.
  • The ring will automatically inflate upon contact with water.
  • The system will be on kickstarter and is expected to cost about $99 (drone not included).
