Meet EMILY, a robotic lifeguard that assists swimmers.
Designed by Hydronalix, a US start-up company, this new device is currently being tested on the shores of California. The 25 lb remote controlled robot can travel up to 40 miles per hour reaching an overcome victim minutes before the rescuers. Meant as a flotation device EMILY offers rest to swimmers needing assistance, especially those caught in rip-tide currents. Some versions of EMILY are equipped with a microphone system so that operators on shore can communicate with the swimmer letting him know help is on the way.
Congratulations to the designers at Hydronalix.
